BS 102000 – Code of practice for the provision of investigative services was published in 2013. Whilst not mandatory the standard provides a framework to demonstrate the integrity of your business. To comply with the standard you will need to demonstrate the following: that you have a clearly defined management structure; that you work to a code of conduct; that your business meets all appropriate legislative requirements; and that you have the necessary finances, resources, competence and insurance in place to provide a quality service.
As an independent UKAS accredited certification body, we can audit your business to ISO 9001:2015 and include the new code of practice as part of your scope. This will give you a UKAS accredited certificate as evidence that your operations are backed up by a quality management system and you are meeting the stringent requirements of industry-recognised standards.
