UKAS supports World Standards Day on the 14th October. The speed of change we are witnessing whilst we transition into the 4th Industrial Revolution would not be possible without the key role of Accreditation and Standards to ensure compatibility and interoperability, so that new technologies can be seamlessly adopted.

This change has its challenges with technologies such as robots and artificial intelligence taking over more and more tasks previously done by humans. To ensure, we seize its full potential for the betterment of society, standards are required to ensure safety and minimise risk. With this ensuring standards are adhered to, Accreditation is equally as pertinent.
