Pre-assessment visit

Your Assessment Manager will guide you through the process and agree timescales for key milestones.

A pre-assessment is an informal visit to determine how ready you are for accreditation.  A pre-assessment visit is optional, but it can be a valuable step in the process to reduce delays in gaining accreditation.

UKAS recommends a pre-assessment visit by the UKAS Assessment Manager (and possibly a technical assessor).

This visit addresses the scope of accreditation requested and will normally involve between 1 and 4 man-days work. It is designed to confirm your organisation's readiness for full assessment.

The Assessment Manager will provide you with a quotation for the work involved and a report on the findings of the pre-assessment following the visit.
