Four additional services to Glacier UKAS accreditation

Increasing Quality & Safety

Glacier has reached two significant milestones with the inspection service team, Professional Testing Services, receiving renewed accreditation from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) which saw the addition of new services and geographies to the scope, as well as the transition to ISO 9001 and 14001: 2015 following the completion of all audits.

The renewed UKAS accreditation now includes Phased Array Weld Inspection, Phased Array Corrosion Mapping, Time of Flight Weld Inspection and Time of Flight Corrosion Mapping and has been extended to encompass Holland, Belgium and Newcastle.

ISO 9001 and 14001: 2015 introduces the concept of risk and opportunity management so that action will be taken to minimise impact on customer satisfaction. Other key updates include increased leadership commitment to actively engage in the effectiveness of the management system.

Duncan McDougall, managing director, Glacier Energy Services, said: “This is a significant achievement for the team and highlights the dedicated professionalism and expertise of the team to ensure Glacier is delivering international-level inspection services to the market. UKAS accreditation has enabled Glacier to demonstrate credible evidence of our best practice and secure new clients”
