As you are aware, the United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union on the 29th March 2019.
Allfix Limited recognises that the process leading up to the exit of the UK from the EU continues to create uncertainty.
As a result, we have received questions from clients in relation to the continuation of supply and services and in addition validity of our Company UKAS Accredited certification issued by NQA after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. At this time it is not fully known what the outcome of the negotiation process with the European Union will entail.
Product and Services
The Company have been working hard to identify and receive assurances from our supply chain and manufacturing facilitation and provision of supplies.
We have identified the EU supply chain and in all cases, we have been able to dual source all of the products from outside the EU to ensure our supplies are as far as reasonably expected will be unaffected.
This includes products that are CE Marked specification and products manufactured specially to customer drawings.
The provision of accredited management system certification to standards published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) is, in general, not tied to European Union regulation.
Allfix Ltd are audited and certified by NQA.
UKAS accredited management system certification (such as that issued by NQA), is recognised globally under the International Accreditation Forum, Multi-Lateral Agreement (IAF MLA).
Signatories to the IAF MLA are required to recognise the certificates issued by conformity assessment bodies (such as NQA), accredited by all other signatories of the IAF MLA (such as UKAS), with the appropriate scope.
ISO certification issued by NQA, under our UKAS accreditation, will remain valid after Brexit.
