Living the UKAS values

Put simply, our company values of professionalism, respect, integrity, dedication and excellence underpin UKAS and all that we do. The values provide guiding principles on how we go about our work and how we treat each other and our customers, setting the foundation for the UKAS of the future.

It’s not what we do, it’s how we do it.  Our values form the ‘cultural glue’ that joins all staff across the business, ensuring that we are all striving for the same goals.

Our values serve as a useful reminder to take PRIDE in everything we do!
