We are very pleased to announce that our in-house soils and materials testing laboratory UKAS accreditation has been renewed for another four years, following a successful audit.


General Manager of Harrison Testing Services, Henry Chapman said “In addition to annual visits by UKAS to our laboratory, the two-day audit is carried out by two assessors every four years to ensure we continue to maintain the exacting standards of testing required by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service [UKAS].


“Our laboratory is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. The accreditation also includes the calculation of the Uniformity Coefficient of granular material, using results from grading tests, commonly used in highways projects.


“Additional accredited tests have be added achieved since the last UKAS renewal four years ago. The laboratory manual has also been re-drafted to meet the requirements of the updated BS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2017 General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories.”


Henry also wanted to give the laboratory staff a mention.

“I would like to acknowledge the work put in by our laboratory team, Matthew Wilson (Laboratory Manager), Graham Breame, Tony Pye and Conor Halifax who’s efforts helped to ensure this successful outcome. Well done to all.”

Steve Williams, Managing Director of Harrison Group also said.

“I would like to thank Henry and the team for their efforts. Over many years the soils testing laboratory has allowed us to offer clients comprehensive in-house ground investigation and testing services and it is important to us that we continue to meet the highest standards required by UKAS as we look to the future.”
