CAN Group is delighted to have successfully conducted its first ‘remote’ UKAS Witness Audit of Advanced Non-Destructive Testing.
The remote accreditation assessment, conducting Phased Array and Time of Flight Diffraction (ToFD), was safely and successfully completed through live video streaming and data sharing – a positive step change in the way businesses can continue to work together by staying apart.
Neil Rose, Inspection Services Director, commented: “As we continue to work through these unprecedented times, it’s more important than ever to adapt ‘normal’ working practices and introduce more innovative ways of working. Maintaining this accreditation is critical for our business and UKAS’ introduction of remote assessments has allowed us to achieve this safely, ensuring we can continue to work efficiently and in compliance and accordance with the required accreditations.
Thank you to UKAS for implementing a flexible and safe approach for conducting assessments through these challenging times, allowing us to continue operations and deliver the highest possible service to our clients.”
CAN continued this success by completing a remote re-certification assessment with Bureau Veritas this week to ensure our continued compliance to ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 45001 (health and safety). This resulted in no findings being raised and a number of positive observations of best practice identified.
CAN welcomes and continues to embrace this change of approach, working with accreditation/certification bodies and clients alike to ensure and assure we continue to operate in accordance with our systems and processes, and in compliance with legislative requirements in these extraordinary times.
