Allium retain UKAS accreditation

We are proud to confirm that following our annual UKAS surveillance visit we have been informed that our UKAS accreditation to ISO 17020 for the surveying of buildings for asbestos has been maintained.

We are justly proud of our accreditation which demonstrates to all our clients that we are technically competent to undertake their surveys and also assures them of the quality of our service. During the annual visit we are audited both on our quality systems in the office and on site undertaking an actual survey.

HSE strongly recommends that only UKAS accredited companies are employed to undertake asbestos surveys.

Operations and Quality Manager Claire Stephen commented “It is a testament to the skills and competencies of all our staff that our accreditation has been renewed. Clients can be confident when appointing Allium that our rigid training and quality checks ensure that surveys are compliant with HSG 264 and they have exercised due diligence by using a UKAS firm”.

Latest Accreditation

Since our last newsletter when we focused on our UKAS accreditation to ISO 17020; your guarantee that we will provide a quality service through our competent and experienced surveyors, utilising our assured in-house surveying procedures to produce a HSG 264 compliant survey report of your premises, we have gained recognition with a further accreditation body.

In order to work for one of our major Local Authority clients we were asked to obtain accreditation to the Trading Standards endorsed scheme TRUSTMARK.

We are pleased to add TRUSTMARK, which was obtained through the completion of an on-line application and the provision of acceptable supporting documentation to our other qualifications; this Government backed scheme aims to provide assurance that registered companies operate good trading practices, offer good customer service and a high level of technical competence.

This latest accreditation compliments our CHAS, SMAS, Constructionline, Safecontractor and Quidos ACDC register achievements.

Copies of our accreditation certificates can be obtained via the downloads section of the Allium website.
