ISO 17020 - Inspecting Bodies

Some of the fields are covered by accreditation by GAUK for Inspection bodies including:

  • Engineering Inspections (including Pressure Systems, lifting equipment/Hoists, electrical installations, power presses, local exhaust ventilation, cargo / pre-shipment inspection, manufacture of boilers / pressure vessels, welding inspections, oil and gas metering)
  • Building and Construction Products
  • Food Inspection
  • and more

The Inspection Bodies are classed as Independent, part of the parent organization but can inspect 3rd parties or can only inspect the aspects of the parent organization. GAUK will assess if the potential Inspection Body is competent and which classification to which it belongs.
