This standard is a code of practice and I think you'll find there's no UKAS "accreditation" for a "Conformity Assessment Body" or CB to perform such an evaluation. You might get a CB to agree, but it won't be accredited under any UKAS scheme.

Thanks Andy.
In the past we have completed the self assessment workbook as it was a code of practice, but apparantley you can now gain certification to it. I know that BSI perform such assessments and they are UKAS accredited. I just wondered if there were any more out there so we can gather a few quotes together.

bsi has a scope of accreditation with UKAS. Accreditation, just like certification is granted for a defined scope. UKAS does not have an accreditation scheme for this standard (not a code of practice), but just because bsi is accredited by UKAS and they claim they can certify organizations to BS 10008, it does not mean that such certification would be accredited by UKAS.

bsi, and several other certification bodies issue certificates to standards that are not covered by an accreditation scheme. For example, ISO 10002. A standard which states that is NOT supposed to be used for certification purposes. I am not passing judgement, just stating facts.

One way around it is to have an ISO 9001 UKAS accredited certification with scope containing wording similar to "in association with BS 10008:2014". There are some certification bodies who will do this although it may require a specialist advisor to be present for the assessment.
