Why to choose an accredited registrar?

Detailed below is an extract from a quote by Ian Handford, Chairman, Federation of Small Businesses, February 2001 -

"Small businesses recognize the importance of independent evaluation. However, for customers, consumers, buyers or purchasers, the old adage "caveat emptor" - let the buyer beware - remains.

If a small business chooses to take the certification route we are strongly in favor that they select a certification body carrying UKAS accreditation. I commit the Federation to make known the importance of UKAS accreditation and the value, security and confidence it brings to small business."

Most companies obtain an ISO9001:2008 certificate in order to have access to new markets or to strengthen their place within their existing market, so it is sensible to avoid the risk of not achieving this goal by having an unaccredited certificate.

The danger of purchasing ISO9001:2008 from a non-accredited source is knowing whether it (the source) is competent. It often comes as a surprise to learn that any one can set themselves up as a certification body (or for that matter any other type of evaluator).

QEC Limited has been accredited by UKAS following an assessment of the competence, integrity and impartiality of its operations. Also an independent Governing Board has been set up to oversee the operations of QEC Limited.

The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the sole authority in the UK, recognized by the DTI, for accrediting certification bodies to operate assessment and certification of quality systems.

When you select QEC Limited for your quality system certification you are assured of a competent assessment and upon successful completion will be licensed by QEC to use the QEC Limited Logo in conjunction with the National Accreditation Mark on your company's literature.
