Approval schemes for members of trade and industry associations and similar organisations, bring benefits to all involved:
- For customers of approved members it means reassurance that their supplier has met a set of performance standards and criteria related to the type and level of service they provide.
- For members, membership of a relevant trade body brings competitive advantage against contractors and suppliers without credentials.
- For membership associations, it improves their standing and reputation and increases the value of membership.
We can conduct assessment and audits to a wide range of industry sectors. These audits can be based on recognised standards (such as competent person or occupational health and safety), an organisations own criteria or code of practice, or a combination of both. We can also work with you to develop your own scheme and associated documentation.
The nature of assessments varies according to the specific requirements of each scheme, but they can include office audits of financial and business systems, technical site audits and desk top assessments, such as health & safety reviews.
As a UKAS accreditation body, with experience in a wide range of industries, you can be assured of our credentials to carry out professional and independent assessment and certification on your behalf.
