It is important that our assessors are acceptable to a wide range of accredited bodies, and therefore it is important that they can demonstrate a good degree of impartiality.

The assignments will suit those who have recently retired from the industry, independent consultants or those who currently work in the industry and who wish to gain assessment experience.

UKAS contracts independent technical assessors on a day rate basis, the level of work depends on the demands that our customers place on us and therefore UKAS cannot guarantee specific levels of work.
