We are a UKAS Accredited ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Test Laboratory
Last year Sychem completed an exciting two-year journey as we became a UKAS accredited ISO/IEC 17025:2017 test laboratory. This was an important milestone for us as a company and for our clients as it meant that we could begin offering calibration and testing services accredited to UKAS standards.
What is UKAS?
UKAS stands for the United Kingdom Accreditation Service. It is the sole national accreditation body recognised by the UK government to assess organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection, and calibration services. UKAS ensures that these organisations meet specific standards and operate competently and impartially.
Credibility and Trust
UKAS accreditation is a mark of credibility and trust. It demonstrates that we as a business have been independently assessed and meet internationally recognised standards for quality and compliance. The UKAS logo is a universally recognised symbol which reflects competence and ability that is reviewed and audited by the governing body.
Compliance with Regulations
Some industries and sectors have specific regulatory requirements, and UKAS accreditation can help businesses demonstrate compliance with these regulations. This is particularly important in areas such as healthcare, lab, and life sciences.
What are the Benefits of Being UKAS Accredited?
Being UKAS accredited means that we can provide our clients with services and documentation that demonstrate compliance to an externally controlled standard. This is a benefit for our clients as Sychem’s processes are externally audited for conformity to the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard.
What Does This Mean For Sychem?
Being an excellent example of our investment and commitment to achieving the highest quality standards for our customers, this accreditation further demonstrates our culture of continuous improvement and willingness to provide the best service for our clients.
With a team of over 35 service and test personnel stationed across the UK, Sychem ensures that your equipment continues operating at its highest possible potential with weekly, quarterly, biannual and annual testing (testing requirements depend on the industry of operation).
