Transfer your Certification to us

If your organisation already holds an ISO 9001, 14001, 27001, 45001, EN1090, CSE or Lexcel certificate, you may wish to consider transferring to Centre for Assessment. You may consider a transfer for many reasons. Perhaps you need a more robust audit, an improved level of service from a UKAS-accredited body or a more affordable fee.

We have vast experience of working with transfer clients, ensuring the necessary audits take place to avoid a gap in your certification.  We do not charge a transfer fee. Should you wish to transfer to us, or to do a cost comparison with your existing certification body to help make your decision, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Simply contact us and a member of our team will ensure that the transfer process is as smooth as possible.
