The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the sole national accreditation to assess the competence of organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.It evaluates these conformity assessment bodies and then accredits them where they are found to meet the internationally specified standard.
An organisation accredited by UKAS can demonstrate competence, impartiality and reliability in its ability to deliver results. Accreditation ensures that everyone from specifiers, purchasers, and suppliers to consumers can have confidence in the quality of goods and in the provision of services throughout the supply chain.
