Edition 224, February 2018

The UKAS Publications List is updated on the final working day of each month.

Organisations are required to comply with current editions of all UKAS publications relevant to their areas of accreditation or application and should also be aware of international publications relevant to their areas of accreditation, available from the EA, IAF and ILAC websites (see links below), and comply with those that are categorised as ‘Mandatory’.  Organisations must ensure that they either have current copies of relevant publications or have web access to those documents.


For a complete printable list of UKAS publications see the Publications List (M4).

For a list of revisions to UKAS publications during the last calendar month, see Changes since the previous edition.

For all historic changes, see Publications: Change History.
