ISO 17020 accreditation

Over the next few years all Notified Bodies will be required to gain an internationally recognised accreditation to an appropriate standard. CCQS has already gained an accreditation to ISO 17020:2012 as a Type A (Fully independent) inspection body.

Accreditations are granted by UK Accreditation Services (UKAS) who are internationally recognised as part of the International Accreditation Federation (IAF). CCQS’ accreditation is listed on their website and the accreditation document itself is here.

CCQS’ accreditation currently only covers its Notified Body equipment and inspection of theatre machinery but our intent is to extend the scope to cover all equipment that we would normally inspect.
