UKAS accredits laboratories that carry out geotechnical and materials testing against the internationally recognised standard ISO/IEC 17025. UKAS accreditation delivers confidence in a laboratory`s ability to produce precise, accurate tests and data including the technical competence of staff, the validity and appropriateness of test methods, the suitability and maintenance of test equipment, the testing environment, sampling, handling and transportation of test items, and the quality assurance of test data. Ultimately, it demonstrates the competence, impartiality and performance capability of a laboratory. Within the Geotechnical sector, UKAS accreditation is available in the areas of soils, aggregates, bituminous mixtures, concrete, stabilized materials, rock, peat materials and geotextiles.
