Why companies are making the move from QMS to UKAS accreditated certifications

Compliant FM is the certification company of choice, delivering UKAS accreditated ISO certifications, nationwide. We are constantly getting asked what is the difference between QMS and UKAS certifications. The answer is simple. The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the sole national accreditation body for the United Kingdom.

Why UKAS is better for your business?

UKAS is responsible for determining, in the public interest, the technical competence and integrity of organisations such as those offering testing, calibration and certification services.

UKAS is recognised by government, to assess against internationally agreed standards, organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.

UKAS ‘checks the checkers’.

UKAS accredits certification bodies against the requirements of ISO Conformity assessment – requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems to deliver a range of management system certification programmes. One of these bodies is Quality Management Systems Certification (QMS).
