we are pleased to announce that we have been recommended for accreditation upon completion of the UKAS pilot programme in January 2019 following an audit with no non-conformity having been identified by UKAS
Advanced Certification is pleased to announce, following a final decision review by the UKAS decision makers, that our Scope of UKAS Accreditation for ISO 14001 has been extended to include a number of new areas, specifically:
EAC 8 - Publishing Activities
EAC 9 - Printing Activities
EAC 14 - Rubber Products
EAC 17 - Metal Products
EAC 19 - Electronics
EAC 22 - Automotive components
This is the result of a significant programme of witnessed audits and enables Advanced Certification to operate across a wide range of industries with UKAS accreditation to support this.
Advanced Certification would like to Thank Milvale Ltd, Innospec Ltd and H Case & Sons Ltd for their support and allowing UKAS attendance at audits
Advanced Certification has successfully passed the first hurdle in updating our accreditation for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems to include ISO 45001:2018
UKAS Senior Assessment Manager Leanie Du Toit issued an Assessment Timeline confirming that the documentation submitted by AC to UKAS was suitable and sufficient to progress to document review, with this review due to be carried out on the 16th and 21st May 2018.
Should this review result in no further actions being required by AC then it is anticipated that updated accreditation would be granted in June 2018

Advanced Certification Limited hosted our inaugural International Conference in London over the week of the 23rd April 2018. Delegates attended from Europe, Middle East, Central and South East Asia.
Keynote speaker James Gibb (Technical Director of Advanced Certification) gave an in-depth analysis of the new ISO 45001:2018 standard, as well as introducing the new online database to the global network.
The conference provided a perfect opportunity for international networking and provided an excellent environment for developing the competencies and capabilities across all AC offices.
UKAS carried out a witness audit of AC Operations Director (Adrian Barnard) on the 12th April at Electo (South West) Limited of Bridgwater.
The much anticipated ISO 45001:2018 standard was published today.
The changes from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 mainly address the new Annex SL structure for all ISO Management system standards with additional changes in the following key areas:
Advanced Certification will be hosting a number of seminars on the ISO 45001 standard over the next few months including a Saturday event at the Brightside Cricket ground on the 11th August.
