CUII Ltd. obtains ISO17020 accreditation for offshore container inspections

Control Union Industrial Inspections Ltd. (CUII Ltd), located in Aberdeen Scotland has recently been successfully assessed by UKAS (the UK Accreditation Service) for periodic inspections of offshore containers and associated lifting equipment.

It was accredited to ISO17020 for periodic inspections as per EN12079 and DNV 2.7-1 standards and non-destructive testing as part of the same. It is the first and only UK based company with this accreditation with UKAS.
The accreditation further underlines and confirms CUIIs highest possible standards on technical competence of staff. In addition, it proves full compliance to the administrative requirements for inspections and processing of inspection results into the in-house developed ‘CIQS’ certification database and customer portal.
 
As CUII Ltd was awarded a type-A accreditation, it also ensures full independence of the offered inspection services, as CUII Ltd is not part of or partnering with any manufacturers or suppliers of lifting equipment.
 
This accreditation further strengthens CUII’s position in the Aberdeen market and CUIIs global companies goal to be the preferred third party inspection company for industrial asset owners.
Control Union Industrial Inspections is part of a worldwide network of logistics, inspection and certification companies who are active in over 70 countries worldwide. Control Union Industrial Inspections offers third party inspection services to industrial asset owners around the world.
