The importance of UKAS Accreditation
There are a many reasons why you should use a UKAS accredited testing laboratory. Here are some of the most important:
- Demonstrate credibility – A UKAS accredited laboratory is able to demonstrate a full audit trail fortheir full service.
- Keep your reputationintact – Confidence in your product is enhanced if clients know it has beenthoroughly evaluated by an independent, competent testing facility.Increasingly customers are relying on independent evidence, rather than simplyaccepting a supplier’s word that the product is fit for purpose.
- Minimise your risk – While risk can never be removed altogether, employing the services of a UKASaccredited testing company means you have chosen a technically competentlaboratory, thus minimising the risk of producing or supplying a faulty service/product.
- Reduce ongoing costs – precompletiontesting of buildings can be expensive and time consuming, even when they aredone correctly the first time. If not done correctly, then the cost and timeinvolved in undertaking the re-testing can be even higher if the product hasfailed to meet the specification and building signoff cannot be achieved.
- Defend against litigation – The use of a UKAS accredited sound testing laboratory is a powerful demonstration that you have exercised all due diligence in the selection and appointment of a supplier.
