As a certification and qualification body, we set, enforce, maintain and improve standards. So, naturally, we seek performance through quality criteria in all that we do.
Our External Regulator
To provide complete assurance to end-users, the APM Group obtained accreditation as a certification body by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). UKAS is the National Accreditation Body recognized by the UK government to accredit organizations providing certification services.
The APM Group obtained UKAS accreditation in December 2000, to BS ISO/IEC 17065:2012 for product/process and ISO/IEC17024:2012 for personnel, and for ISO/IEC 17021:2011 for Quality Management Systems. This means we are able to demonstrate the competence, impartiality and performance capability of our assessment processes to internationally recognized standards. UKAS audits us annually, to ensure our processes are fully in accordance with these standards.
Assessment by UKAS, and the insights into our business that this gives us, ensures we fully embrace all opportunities to learn and improve the way we work. We believe this supplements the professionalism and expertise that we have developed over the years.
The APM Group Limited are accredited by UKAS as a Certification Body against the standards mentioned above, and entitled to use these UKAS certification marks.
UKAS Registration Number: 126.
