Element congratulates UKAS on 25th anniversary

“Congratulations to UKAS on your 25th anniversary as the UK’s National Accreditation Body.  Anniversaries afford reflection and UKAS can proudly reflect on the successes of the last 25 years, culminating in being recognised as one of the world’s leading Accreditation Bodies.

Through membership of international organisations, UKAS supports UK businesses to serve truly global end markets through mutual recognition.  Quality is critical in ensuring product safety in supply chains and the independent verification of competence and integrity that UKAS accreditation provides, gives assurance to our customers.

As a global provider of TIC services in complex supply chains serving end markets such as aerospace, connected technologies, transportation, energy and environmental, Element’s licence to operate in these supply chains is enabled through our UKAS accreditations. As UKAS delivers confidence to its stakeholders through accreditation, Element delivers certainty.

Anniversaries also provide an opportunity to consider what the future holds. As we have seen with COVID-19, there will most definitely be unexpected and unplanned challenges ahead. I am confident that UKAS will continue to play a significant role in supporting the TIC industry as we embrace transformational innovation in the shape of digitisation and cutting-edge technologies. One thing is certain – the future will be inspiring.

Enjoy your 25th year!”


Matt Hopkinson, EVP EMEAA, Element
