VINCI Technology Centre achieves UKAS re-accreditation

We are delighted to confirm that after a major reassessment by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Services) we have maintained UKAS accreditation for our testing laboratories.

The assessment was carried out by a total of seven assessors over twelve person-days and was, to say the least, exhaustive.

A host of procedures were examined including :

  • Concrete testing
  • Coatings tests
  • Façade weathertightness
  • Acoustic performance testing (airborne & flanking)

We are a Notified Body (NB) for testing in support of CE marking and there is a requirement to demonstrate independence from our parent company. This was reviewed as part of the assessment and our status as an NB is continued.

One of the assessors commented that all our staff carried out their roles to a very high standard.

VINCI Technology Centre Managing Director, Dr Russell Matthews said “this is an excellent outcome and a testament to the professionalism and expertise of our team. UKAS accreditation is critical to our business and we will strive to maintain and improve the quality of our service”.
