Inspection Body Accreditation

Supporting organisations performing various types of inspection, surveys and risk assessments across all sectors

Inspection services play an important role in providing assurance of the operational safety of many items which are used in everyday life. Accreditation demonstrates the technical competence of organisations to perform inspections of products, services, processes, installations and design.

Accreditation recognises competence against national and international standards which allows inspections reports to be more acceptable for overseas and domestic markets. Inspection bodies can be accredited once and accepted anywhere to improve their competitiveness.

Examples of inspection activity include;
  • Engineering Inspection (including Pressure Systems, lifting equipment/Hoists, electrical installations, power presses, local exhaust ventilation, cargo / pre-shipment inspection, manufacture of boilers / pressure vessels, welding inspections, oil and gas metering)
    Building and Construction Products
  • Food Inspection (food safety, food hygiene, manufacturing and processed practices, cargo inspection, animal welfare, labelling)
  • Asbestos Surveys
  • Legionella Risk Assessments
  • Health and Social Care
  • Care Home Inspection
  • Nuclear New Build Inspection
  • Fire Protection Systems
  • Crime Scene Examination
  • Railway Competence
  • Plant Health
