There’s been cause for celebration recently at Network VEKA, as the organisation has been awarded UKAS accreditation.
MD John Ogilvie explains: “UKAS accreditation is a formal, third party recognition for competence to perform specific tasks – in Network VEKA’s case, certifying window installers under our Competent Persons Scheme – Assure. Having Competent Person Scheme Certification Body status allows Network VEKA to certify window installers who want to self certify their installations.
“This accreditation demonstrates our success at meeting the stringent requirements of international accreditation standards, something that can be difficult to achieve with a small team. The assessment process required Network VEKA to demonstrate the robustness of our documented quality management system, as well as witnessed audits and inspections, and UKAS were thoroughly impressed with our professionalism regarding new regulations and our commendation for the MTC programme.
“It is without a doubt, a great achievement for Network VEKA and is a further endorsement of the high standards to which the organisation operates.”
The United Kingdom Accreditation Service is the sole national accreditation body recognised by the government to assess organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services. Accreditation by UKAS demonstrates the competence, impartiality and performance capability of these evaluators.
John continues: “Our official UKAS accreditation will also provide a competitive route for those installers that are interested in the Green Deal to apply for certification to be registered with the scheme.”
