Approved manufacturers can complete initial verification of instruments as set out in their accredited quality system.

Email one of the following Approved Bodies for further details:
Once accredited, your details will be passed to the Secretary of State within the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS), which will then add you to the list of approved manufacturers below. Any approved manufacturer that does not maintain its accreditation shall be removed and thereafter be unable to undertake verification activities.
