About UKAS

The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the only organisation to be recognised by the government on a national level to accredit organisations delivering testing, inspection, calibration and certification services, ensuring operation in compliance with international standards.

Recognising high standards at Northern Balance Ltd

Northern Balance is a UKAS accredited calibration laboratory number 0370. We are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 as assessed by UKAS. We are one of the few companies to attain this high standard for on-site calibration of non-automatic weighing machines. Accreditation has been maintained since our initial UKAS audit in 1992.

This is good news for our customers, as it allows us to offer a more efficient service. It is also a just reward for the hard work that has gone into the development of our company over the years.

UKAS accreditation is a reflection of the competence, impartiality and integrity of our organisation, assuring our customers that they can expect to receive the highest quality service from us.

Please follow this link to our accreditation and scope on the UKAS website. The mere presence of our accreditation and scope on the UKAS website is proof that our accreditation is current!
