UKAS Committee Update


UKAS accreditation was granted to GBGB on March 23rd 2010.  

GBGB’s UKAS Committee is an independent group chaired by the independent GRB director Tom Shields QC operating within its Terms of Reference. Its objective is to oversee the accreditation project and monitor the certification and associated operating procedures of the GBGB on an on-going basis.

The EN45011 standard requires the existence of an impartial group - Clause 4.2 e) - with independent expertise that can review the activities of the Certification Body and safeguard its impartiality. The committee's make-up has satisfied UKAS inspection, so too its commitment to engage with a variety of stakeholders to inform and answer questions on the purpose and progress of the project and its role going forward.

For any specific queries or further information, please contact Amanda Duplock, Quality Manager and secretary to the UKAS Committee -
