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. The IAF Logo is used by WCS and always displayed in close proximity to the accreditation body logo.

It was lovely to welcome the auditor back to Russell Taylor. It’s always a bonus when an auditor that has been here before as they are more familiar with the company and the scope of our business and I also feel it helps put the staff that may come into contact with the auditor at ease as they are not a complete stranger! We would not think of going anywhere else other than WCS and look forward to next year.
