Global Assessments UK provides accreditation to organizations that perform different types of testing and calibration including standard methods, non-standard and laboratory developed methods. The laboratories can be testing or calibrating as first, second or third party or for product testing laboratories.
The development of Management Systems for quality, technical and administrative operations can be through ISO 17025 and is applicable to laboratories of any size or the extent of calibration/testing services. If Sampling or Design and Development is not a requirement of the activities, then those clauses do not apply.
ISO 17025 does not cover the safety and regulatory requirements of laboratories but does cover the Management System and the test methods.
Accreditation is available to:
- Construction and Construction Products
- Fire and Textiles
- Renewable Energy
