UKAS via LRQA
UKAS accreditation provides an assurance of the competence, impartiality and integrity of conformity assessment bodies. UKAS accredited certification, testing and calibration and inspection reduces the need for suppliers to be assessed by each of their customers. UKAS’ involvement in international groups provides for mutual recognition which further reduces the need for multiple assessments of suppliers and as a consequence helps to reduce barriers to trade. It is therefore BIS policy to recommend the use of UKAS accredited conformity assessment services whenever this is an option.
LRQA is one of the world’s leading providers of independent assurance services with a portfolio of internationally recognised clients.
Our management system certification, verification and training solutions help organisations like yours meet their business objectives and stakeholder expectations. We do this by providing a person or team of people to review, inspect or verify aspects of your business or supply chain. This may be to a defined and published set of criteria such as recognised standards or schemes. Alternatively, it may be to your own bespoke set of requirements.
So, whether you are looking for certification to recognised international standards, verification of your greenhouse gases or recognition of your latest sustainability report, our assessors and verifiers can help. They will provide an impartial, balanced view of how closely you are meeting your objectives and have the experience and knowledge to give you a fair and thorough assessment. Typically, this will be in the form of an assessment report including an executive summary tailored to your precise set of circumstances, giving you the means to continually improve.
By using our unique “True Resilience” approach, we can really give your business the edge by turning the assessment process into a powerful management tool to improve and protect performance. By understanding what really matters to your organisation and stakeholders, we can help you improve your performance and reduce risk through your operations.
