I congratulate the HKQAA on achieving endorsement from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service for the issue of certificates which demonstrate conformance to: The ISO 9000 series of standards of Quality Management Systems in 31 areas of business activity.
The HKQAA scheme QSPC for ready-mixed concrete products.
Your organisation is only the third in Asia to gain such accreditation from my company.
My staff have been most impressed with the high level of commitment demonstrated by your team and by the responsiveness of the whole organisation to the demands of accreditation.
I am sure you will find this accreditation adds considerable value to your activities.
It was issued by the sole national accreditation body in Britain, which was the birthplace of ISO 9000.
Britain is currently the country which uses this standard most and which, as a result, has clearly gained a considerable increase in the international competitiveness of its industries.
In addition to the pure prestige associated with this accreditation, your customers should gain advantage from the many mutual recognition agreements which assure them their UKAS-accredited certificates will automatically be recognised in a great many countries in Europe and across the world. BRYAN SMITH Chairman United Kingdom Accreditation Service
