Accredited once, accepted everywhere

The international harmonization of these standards warrants that the accreditations are carried out on a global basis according to the same criteria. As a result of these harmonized standards, and thanks to international agreements, the assessment services of bodies accredited in United Kingdom are accepted in many European and non-European countries.

This ability to overcome technical barriers to trade facilitates cross-border trade and warrants the acceptance of conformity assessments results at an international level without requiring further inspections.
