This publication sets out the conditions that organisations must follow if they wish to use the UKAS logo and accreditation symbols. It is intended for organisations working in calibration, testing, inspection and certification of systems, products and personnel.
If you wish to use the words ‘accreditation’, ‘accredit’, ‘accredited’ or ‘accrediting’ in your company, LLP or business name, you will need to obtain prior approval from the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The guidance sheet gives details on how to proceed.
The administration of the names regime is carried out by Companies House on behalf of the Secretary of State.
