UKAS extends BBA’s ISO 45001
scope to cover base metals and
fabricated metal products.

The United Kingdom Accreditation Body (UKAS) has extended the British Board of Agrément (BBA)’s scope for ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems to cover IAF17 – Base metals and fabricated metal products.

The BBA is a UKAS-accredited Management Systems Certification Body (No. 0113) for ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 across a range of IAF product sectors. After successful completion of a UKAS assessment, and of their accreditation for ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, the BBA is pleased to confirm the extension in service offering, continuing their drive to respond to client and industry demands.

ISO 45001 is the international standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems which aims to support organisations by improving occupational health and safety, reducing work-related accidents and risks, and improving employee safety.

“This is an important expansion of our areas of work. We are already active in the base metals sector for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, as well as for Factory Production Control certificates and product approvals. This extension to scope allows clients to benefit by combining their different forms of approval under a single Certification Body”.

Karen Maplesden, Technical Lead for the BBA’s management system certification, British Board of Agrément

The first two accredited ISO 45001 Certificates by BBA for IAF17 are in the process of being issued to Celsa Manufacturing (UK) Ltd and McEvoy Engineering Ltd.
