CCQS was established in year 2000 to provide expert advice and support for CE marking and safety of machinery and consumer products.
In year 2001 CCQS was appointed by UK government as a Notified Body for Machinery Directive, Low Voltage Directive and EMC Directive. The Notified Body appointments for Low Voltage Directive has been removed but Machinery and EMC Directives have been maintained to the present.
In 2013 CCQS gained accreditation to ISO 17020 Bodies performing Inspection for its Notified Body activities. This is part of an EU strategy to base Notified Body appointments on accreditation to suitable standards. Having gained the principal accreditation, CCQS is now seeking to extend the scope of accreditation to other activities. The accreditation already covers inspection of machinery in theatres.
In 2015 CCQS UK Ltd extended the scope of accreditation to cover Personal Protective Equipment Directive
CCQS main office is in London, but we have engineers working from home offices in other locations around the country.
Although the UK market has always been important to CCQS, the company has a special focus on China with a representative office in Beijing with Technical and Sales staff to support the Chinese market for CE marking consultancy and certification.
