UKAS is the sole national Accreditation Body for the United Kingdom. UKAS is recognised by government, to assess against internationally agreed standards, organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.
CWP Ltd has undertaken work on behalf of UKAS for over 7 years, initially providing Technical Assessors for the Mircogeneration Certification Scheme. Our Principal Consultant Tanya Christensen is an ISO 17065 (previously EN 45011) Lead Assessor and also a ISO 17065 and 17024 Technical Assessor across a range of Low Carbon Schemes.
This expertise has ensured that CWP Ltd is in a unique position with a 360o view on standardisation, certification, accreditation and policy linkages, including the often unseen drivers for and against certification. CWP’s involvement with UKAS has helped us to build a strong network of contacts in the sector and to develop a positive reputation as experts in the field.
