London – Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (UK) Ltd, a subsidiary of the leading classification society, ClassNK, has become an accredited Certification Body. The accreditation was granted by the UK national accreditation body UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service).
The accreditation covers the certification of companies applying the ISO9001 Management Standard.
As Dr. A Rahim, Director of NKK(UK) Ltd explains, “Whilst ClassNK does already provide a broad spectrum of accredited certification services, the accreditation of NKK(UK) Ltd offers a high level of service provided at a more local level. NKK(UK) Ltd. is already building on this beginning and expects to be accredited for ISO14001 very shortly. In addition, certification of OHSAS 18001 can also be performed directly through NKK(UK) Ltd. Furthermore, by close cooperation with ClassNK and by having a common pool of Auditors, we can ensure that other certification needs beyond these three standards, including all mandatory certification and surveys, are carried out in a coordinated and cost effective manner for all our clients.”
NKK(UK) Ltd expect that this new service will be of interest not only to clients in the UK, but also throughout Europe, Africa, and in Countries such as Singapore and India.
