We are delighted to announce that IRATA has been granted accreditation to ISO/IEC 17024 by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).
Certification bodies conforming to ISO/IEC 17024 have demonstrated their competence, impartiality, and integrity to UKAS in order to be accredited. The IRATA technician certification scheme will be recognised internationally as having been independently verified as consistent and reliable, and thus enhancing the reputation of IRATA certified technicians and IRATA member companies.
Jonathan Capper (IRATA Executive Chairman), pictured above with Dr Sheila Kondaveeti (IRATA CEO), at the UKAS certification ceremony, commented:
“This fantastic accomplishment further solidifies IRATA’s standing as the world leader in rope access. Demonstrating compliance with this internationally recognised standard will credit our technicians and provide clients and IRATA member companies with confidence in IRATA-certified personnel.”
IRATA takes pride in this achievement and will continue to maintain and promote high standards, safety, work quality and practices for the industrial rope access community.
