United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS)
UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) is "recognised by the British Government as the UK national body responsible for assessing and accrediting the competence of organisations in the fields of calibration, measurement, testing, inspection and the certification of systems, personnel and products".
Meeting the strict criteria demanded by the standard requires a considerable investment of both staff time and money and underlines NEL’s commitment to the highest levels of quality.
Accreditation to this standard gives our customers the knowledge that an independent third party has checked our facilities and that the claims we make in terms of measurements uncertainties are valid.
Each calibration and testing laboratory has an accredited schedule that lists the tests (or type thereof) that they have been assessed against and deemed competent to perform in terms of equipment, personnel, experience and training.
Our accreditations include:
ISO17025 UKAS Accreditation: Calibration Laboratory 0009
Flow (Hydrocarbons, Gas and Water) and Density (Water and Hydrocarbons)
