Bureau Veritas awarded UKAS accreditations for energy and engineering

Bureau Veritas has been awarded two new accreditations by the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) to deliver services on behalf of its energy and engineering technical service business units, ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015 and ISO/IEC 17065:2012.

The newly acquired certifications are a result of the transition from ISO17020 accreditations that Bureau Veritas UK has held since the original induction of EU New Approach Directives. It further highlights the quality of service that the company is delivering to meet the evolving needs of clients, proving it can manage the new accreditations that are required as a result of moving to outside the EU, supporting the application of UKCA mark in the manufacturing sector related to Pressure Equipment, Machinery and Lift regulations.

ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015 - This accreditation standard establishes a framework to ensure any audits and certifications demonstrate proficiency in evaluating and verifying compliance with management system standards.

ISO/IEC 17065:2012 - This validates Bureau Veritas’ competence in certifying the quality of products, processes and services, whilst enhancing the efficiency, effectiveness and productivity of the company.

As the company continues to expand its services in the energy and engineering service sector, these accreditations provide advantage to clients by instilling trust and confidence in the service provision. It also contributes to maintaining high standards in audit and certification processes across diverse management systems, as well as products, processes, and services in accordance with globally recognised standards.  

Sammy Tweddle, Energy Director, commented on the importance of these accreditations: “We are delighted to have received these accreditations from UKAS. It reflects our dedication to maintaining the highest standards in our engineering services and also provides assurance to our clients and stakeholders that Bureau Veritas is well equipped to navigate the changing regulatory landscape in the energy and manufacturing sectors. As we look to the future, these will play a crucial role in enhancing the value we bring, especially where compliance with stringent standards is essential.”
