In September, following a UKAS surveillance visit, Global Environmental have received a successful reassessment of ISO 17020 accreditation.
The audit carried out by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is an annual review of the company’s quality management systems for inspection bodies.
UKAS is the sole national accreditation body recognised by government to assess, against internationally agreed standards, organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.
Fergus McCloskey, Managing Director of Global Environmental, commented, “Our ongoing accreditation assures our client base that we possess the skills and knowledge, with quality management system’s in place, to deliver the high level of service they have come to expect. Most clients now expect or require ISO 17020 as a benchmark of competence in the asbestos surveying sector and know they can rely on us for competence and consistent advice.”
