The UKAS Publications List is updated on the final working day of each month.
Organisations are required to comply with current editions of all UKAS publications relevant to their areas of accreditation or application and should also be aware of international publications relevant to their areas of accreditation, available from the EA, IAF and ILAC websites.
Organisations must ensure that they either have current copies of relevant publications or have web access to those documents.
UKAS has an ‘oversight’ function and works to ensure that those organisations it accredits, meet the applicable international accreditation standards.
Accreditation is a formal, third party recognition of competence to perform specific tasks. It provides a means to identify a proven, competent elevator so that the selection of a laboratory, inspection or certification body is an informed choice.
