The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) issues clarification on the matter of non-accredited ISO certification.

It confirms that accreditation “can only be obtained (in the UK) from United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS)” and that “any organisation therefore that is suggesting it is accredited when they are not is likely to be guilty of an offence under the Business Protection from Misleading Marketing Regulations 2008”.

PAVY Ltd welcomes this statement as there are a number of “self-certified” schemes available on the market which give the impression of being equivalent to UKAS. PAVY Ltd will only work with UKAS accredited bodies. This ensures that the ISO systems we put in place fully meet the standard(s), and will be recognised as such by all your clients.
