The UK Quality Infrastructure

15th Jun 2015

The government have launched what is known as the UK Quality Infrastructure. It appears to have four main elements;

  • standardisation, creates the national and international standards that specify how things should be made and done in a way that is mutually acceptable
  • testing and measurement, implementation of specifications and standards to ensure validity and consistency
  • certification, ensures that those who use standards and codes are applying them in the right way
  • accreditation, ensures that those who carry out testing, certification and inspection are competent to do so

More information on the UKQI can be found at the link below and in the downloadable brochure.
