The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is a nationally recognised accreditation body that assesses an organisation’s ability to provide high-quality, certified testing, inspection, or calibration services to its customers.
UKAS covers all types of testing, inspection, and calibration services, from covid-19 tests, drug and alcohol screen testing, microbiological testing, minerals testing and more. Rotech Laboratories is UKAS accredited to 17025, which is specifically for laboratory testing.
UKAS is the nationally recognised awarding body for the United Kingdom. In other countries, there are different standards or awarding bodies that require accreditation for testing, calibration, and inspection services. In Ireland, the awarding body is INAB (Irish National Accreditation Board), whereas in the USA the awarding body is USAS (United States Accreditation Services).
