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. Unlike many overseas countries the UK has only one recognised accreditation body.


Currently WCS is accredited by UKAS for ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 Certification Schemes. WCS has certificate number 0060 and the accreditation can be validated by visiting the UKAS website.  UKAS


ANAB has been active since 1989 and was the first management systems accreditation body in the United States.


Currently WCS is ANAB Accredited for the following certification schemes:

  • ISO 9001 (QMS)
  • AS 9100 (AQMS)

Lookout for the accreditation marks on WCS certificates of registration.

It is good that the audit is carried out in a friendly manner by both Auditors. This relaxes the auditee's allowing good quality audit.
