Transfer your Certification to Centre for Assessment

If your organisation already holds an ISO 9001, 14001, 27001, 45001 or EN1090 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. 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.
