UKAS, the United Kingdom Accreditation Service, has granted LRQA accreditation to deliver ISO 50001 (International Energy Management System Standard) certification services. This accreditation – which spans all of LRQA’s major markets across Asia, EMEA and the Americas – will enable LRQA to continue to build market share for what is fast becoming one of the most popular standards. According to the latest ISO survey, the number of ISO 50001 certificates has seen a remarkable increase of 332% year on year when comparing 2011 with 2012.
“LRQA has been delivering accredited assessment services to organisations choosing ISO 50001 to drive energy efficiencies and cost savings since the launch of the standard back in 2011,” said Steve Williams, Deputy Technical Director LRQA. “This full scope accreditation from UKAS builds on our existing regional accreditations and opens up new and exciting markets and opportunities for our organisation.”
Accreditation by UKAS means that LRQA has been assessed against internationally recognised standards to demonstrate their competence, impartiality and performance capability
