The UK exited the EU on 31 January 2020. We are now in a Brexit transition period which will last up to 31 December 2020.
During this time, the services we currently provide to your business remain unaffected.
We are watching closely for any potential impact on our work as Notified Body (NoBo) under various EU Directives and Regulations.
Please note that:
- ISO is an international organisation and not tied to the European Union in any way. ISO Standards are therefore unaffected by Brexit.
- As an International Accreditation Forum (IAF) MLA signatory, UKAS’s accredited management system approvals will continue to be recognised post Brexit.
- UKAS is currently a member of the European Accreditation Association (EA). The EA has produced a paper detailing a number of options for changes to the membership criteria which will be debated at the EA General Assembly meeting end November 2020. In the meantime, UKAS remains a full member of EA, retaining its membership post Brexit for a minimum period of two years. We will update you on any changes to the EA membership and what this means for you in due course.
Through our involvement in Standards Committees, Notified Body Forums and strong relationships with government and industry, we are able to stay closely involved with developments.
As the transition period progresses, we will keep you updated both on this page and via our account managers and business support teams. For specific areas of interest and further information please click on the relevant topic.
