Internationally recognised accreditation is controlled by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF).
It is important to understand that any reputable Accreditation Body must be a member of the IAF. WCS is Accredited by two members of the IAF.
United Kingdom Accreditation Service is the sole national accreditation body recognised by government to assess, against internationally agreed standards, organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.
