2. What is the difference between accredited and unaccredited certification?
In the United Kingdom, certification bodies may apply to the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) for accreditation of their certification scheme. This level of certification is often required by government bodies and other corporate entities. Many other customers are concerned only with ensuring that their suppliers are compliant with the standards. Accredited certification is indicated by the "crown and tick" UKAS mark in the UK and companies such as BSIQA, LRQA and SGS are providers of this type of certification.
