Technical Assessors – Fire Testing / Certification

UKAS is looking for fire testing/certification independent technical assessors

Successful applicants will have experience in one or both of the following groups: passive and active

Passive

You will have an understanding of flammability testing and thermodynamics and crucially installation .

Ideally you will know the legislative framework and schemes for certification and for testing understand how the standards are interpreted and the requirements of ISO IEC 17025:2017.

Active

You will have a background in suppression (fire extinguishers, sprinkler systems, risers, hoses/couplings/fittings and some niche areas like aircraft and off-shore) and purely active fire systems such as detection systems but you need someone with an electronics background as there is a huge variety/complexity in system components.

Ideally you will know the legislative framework and schemes for certification and for testing understand how the standards are interpreted and the requirements of ISO IEC 17025:2017.

Installations come into both passive and active.

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.

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.

If you are interested and would like to discuss the details of the above opportunities please contact the Operations Support Team on 01784 429000 or email [email protected]
