We are proud to announce that UKAS, the UK’s sole accreditation body, is an International Quality Awards 2022 gold partner.  

The Chartered Quality Institute (CQI) is thrilled to announce the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS)  as a gold partner for this year’s International Quality Awards (IQA). A strong advocate for quality improvement globally, UKAS is the national accreditation body for the United Kingdom. UKAS is recognised and appointed by Government to assess organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.   

The International Quality Awards, taking place in London  on Thursday 23 June 2022, celebrate excellence in quality management across the globe. The awards align with UKAS’s principles, focusing on embedding quality management into every organisation, through the key pillars of strong governance, robust systems of assurance, and continuous improvement.  

Ian Howe, Head of Membership at CQI, said: “I am delighted that UKAS has once again decided to partner with the International Quality Awards. Having our national accreditation body involved in our awards, recognising and celebrating exceptional organisation, teams and individuals for the third consecutive year is fantastic for the CQI, and the event itself.” 

Mark Bohun, Commercial Director at UKAS, commented: "The International Quality Awards is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate hard work and innovation in quality roles, recognising both organisations and individuals working in the spirit of continuous improvement for the benefit of all. 

"These values are very close to UKAS’ own, and we are proud to sponsor the International Quality Awards 2022 and look forward to celebrating in person with our peers on the day."
