Statement of Impartiality
UKAS (the only National Accreditation Body for the United Kingdom) are appointed by government, to assess and accredit organisations like ours to ensure that we maintain the standards we expect of others.
And that is why each year our rigorous assessment regimes are audited by UKAS, to ensure we meet the highest standards.
Our UKAS accreditation number is 7975.
One of the fundamental principles of third-party certification, so that the certification provides confidence, is that it is impartial and free from bias.
In order to provide this confidence, it is essential that certification decisions are based solely on objective evidence of conformity and are not influenced by other interests.
Certsure, trading as either, NICEIC, NICEIC Certification or ELECSA, ensures that the certification provided is impartial by managing any potential conflicts of interest so that its impartiality is not compromised.
In particular, we have established processes which ensure that, irrespective of what assistance may have been employed to develop or maintain the client's processes:
no advantage will be gained
certification will not be easier or cheaper
and that certification decisions will be based solely on the objective evidence gathered during assessment activities.
