An applicant or accredited body may formally request UKAS to reconsider an adverse accreditation decision which has been made and which relates to its desired accreditation status.
If an applicant or accredited body wishes to submit an appeal it should be submitted in writing to the UKAS Accreditation Director (or nominated person), within one month of the date of written notification of the adverse accreditation decision. Any adverse accreditation decision that is the subject of an appeal will remain in force during the appeal process unless a change is agreed at the end of the Stage 1 and/or Stage 2 process.
An appellant may withdraw the appeal at any time during the process. If for any reason the appeal is withdrawn, UKAS will not accept a future appeal on the same grounds.
