Transparent and credible governance of certification bodies through the accreditation process is fundamentally important to the value of independent
assessment and certification.
Being assessed by an accredited organisation is important. It helps your company reduce risks, increase its opportunities and gain more commercial value than using a non-accredited body.
Accreditation proves that the certification body has the necessary professionalism and expertise to conduct assessments and gives additional purchaser confidence. For this reason, accredited certification holds greater commercial value and integrity than non-accredited approval.
We have been examined and approved by each accreditation council to assess companies in specific industry sectors. It shows we have the necessary professionalism and expertise to carry out assessments, which gives you more confidence.
In the UK, LRQA holds accreditation from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). LRQA is also a Licenced AA1000 Provider.
Not all certification bodies are made the same. When selecting the body you want to work with ensure they are accredited by UKAS to provide the service you want. Look for the UKAS tick and crown for your assurance.
Globally, we are accredited by more than 50 accreditation bodies.
