Welcome to the Association of British Certification Bodies

ABCB is the UK Trade Association for nationally accredited certification bodies. Membership is open to UK based certification bodies holding UKAS accreditation.

Overseas membership is open to non-UK based certification bodies that hold accreditation from UKAS or from another national accreditation body that is a signatory of either the IAF multilateral mutual recognition agreement or of a regional mutual recognition agreement recognized by IAF. Certification bodies actively seeking national accreditation can join as associate members.
