» UKAS welcomes Brexit White Paper

17 July, 2018

UKAS has welcomed the publication of the Government’s White Paper: The Future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union last week and was pleased to note that the Government‘s proposals for a free trade area and common rule book highlighted its commitment to the accreditation of conformity assessment bodies for manufactured goods. Equally the Paper recognises the important role of a jointly agreed accreditation framework demonstrating the robustness of UK and EU conformity assessment in the establishment of a UK free trade area with our European partners. UKAS continues to work closely across Government, but in particular with our sponsor Department; Business, Energy, Industrial Strategy; and the Departments for International Trade and Exiting the European Union to ensure these messages are reinforced as part of ongoing negotiations.
