UKAS launch new brand and website

UKAS is pleased to announce the launch of our new brand and website. We are extremely proud of the UKAS brand and its heritage, and our refresh honours this whilst creating a more modern image. Our updated brand represents our progression as a forward-thinking organisation, whilst reflecting our longstanding commitment to quality, service and technical expertise.

The renewed look is an important part of UKAS’ strategy and supports our expansion into new areas of accreditation and our apex position in the testing, inspection and certification marketplace. Our role within the global accreditation community is also highlighted in our new tagline – ‘A world of confidence.’ Working alongside our customers and stakeholders, our goal is to deliver trust and confidence in the products and services we all rely upon.

Explore our new website

To support our brand refresh and in response to customer feedback, we have updated our website. We have retained the existing functionality, but care has been taken to streamline the user-journey making it much easier for visitors to find relevant information quickly. The website is our most important communication tool and we will continue to evolve the site and add content for our customers and stakeholders.

The national accreditation symbols

As part of this brand refresh the national accreditation symbols have also been renewed and will be sent to customers directly from our customer liaison team. The BEIS “Conditions of Use” document has been updated to reflect these changes and is available on the BEIS website.

We appreciate that our customers will require time to implement changes to their symbols, so we have agreed the following pragmatic timeframes

  • Digital Materials – 1 year from launch (1st February 2022)
  • Printed Materials – 2 years from launch (1st February 2023)
  • Certificates – 3 years from launch (1st February 2024)

We would like to thank our customers, stakeholders, UKAS Board and Policy Advisory Council for the consultation they have provided throughout this important project.  As we start 2021, I am confident this new branding supports our key role within the global community and that our new website equips our customers with the information and resources they require.

If you have any questions or feedback please contact the team.
