Management systems

Our accreditations.

Transparent and credible governance of certification bodies through the accreditation process is fundamentally important to the value of independent assessment and certification.

Accreditation is central to stakeholder confidence, ensuring assessor competence and maintaining  the impartiality of the decision-making process. Accredited certification of management systems to recognised national or international standards provides organisations with a credible means of managing risk, improving efficiency and fostering continual improvement and greater competitiveness.

We are recognised by nearly 50 accreditation bodies:

Please note: LRQA is now trading as Lloyd's Register (LR). Our accreditations are granted by accreditation bodies with defined sector and geographic scopes. If you would like more information about these, you can request detailed scopes of accreditation from your nearest LR office to confirm the accreditations available to you.

Independent and impartial

The markets served by LR value our services for their integrity. Critical to this is the need to recognise any potential conflicts of interest in the services provided and to take action to ensure these do not adversely impact on the impartiality, independence and objectivity of our actions.

We maintain our independence and impartiality by pro-actively managing conflicts of interest across all LR businesses including those which may exist between consultancy and third-party certification services.  We will not offer consultancy services for any management system that is in the process of or has completed accredited third-party certification with LR. Further, if we are already providing consultancy services relating to a management system, we will not offer any accredited third-party assessment services.

 Refusal of certification

If at the quoting and contracting stage, or during the process of certification LR is unable to grant certification, the reason for this decision will be communicated to your organisation.
