NQA achieves UKAS accreditation for ISO 45001:2018

NQA was one of 20 Certification Bodies that applied for the migration assessment process and were successfully granted UKAS accreditation on Friday 29th June 2018; after demonstrating competence and compliance during a successful independent review.


This is important news for our clients, as NQA can now issue UKAS accredited ISO 45001 certificates to the new standard; globally.

Nick Wright, NQA Operations Director, said:

“This is a great achievement for the whole team, which once again puts NQA at the very forefront of a global migration – more importantly it enables us to support our clients through a significant migration as smoothly as possible.” 

A smooth migration is a top priority for us at NQA. We want all clients wishing to begin their migration to the new standard and those who have begun already to be assured that NQA is here to help. We aim to support all clients throughout their journey.

For clients wishing to implement a health and safety management system to the new international standard, we have produced a useful guide to support them on this journey; you can request a copy of our ISO 45001:2018 Implementation Guide from a member of our sales team.

If you have certification to OHSAS 18001 you will need to migrate to ISO 45001 to maintain the validity of certification. There is the normal 3 year migration period so there is still time to plan your move over to ISO 45001. We have also produced a useful gap guide to support you with this process.

If you are interested in migrating your existing OHSAS 18001 system or getting a quote for certification to ISO 45001, please get in touch and we will be happy to help. Contact a meber of the team on 0800 052 2424 or email
