Kitemark scheme receives UKAS accreditation

BSI has become the first and only product certification body to achieve the Royal Crown and Tick accreditation from UKAS for its Thatcham BSI Kitemark scheme, aimed at raising quality and safety standards in crash repair.

BSI has been accredited against British Standard BS EN 45011 for Product Certification Bodies and it demonstrates BSI’s competence, impartiality and performance capability in auditing and certifying vehicle body repair processes.

The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the sole national accreditation body recognised by Government to assess, against internationally agreed standards, organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.

BSI’s global managing director, Alastair Trivett, said: “UKAS accreditation of the Thatcham BSI Kitemark scheme is yet another distinguishing mark to show that motor insurers, accident management companies, fleet managers and the motoring public can have confidence in the quality and safety of vehicle body repair throughout the UK.”
