RMISC achieves UKAS Accreditation

Published 12/02/2013 14:00:00 in Press Releases

Retail Motor Industry Standards and Certification (RMISC), a subsidiary of the RMI, has been granted accreditation by the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) to inspect motor industry businesses against the PAS 125 Bodyshop standard.


Stuart James, RMISC Director commented “RMISC has worked hard over the last three years to prove its capability to gain UKAS accreditation. This is an outstanding achievement which will result in RMISC being able to support the UK motor industry in a more direct way.  It will mean that standards that have previously been price prohibitive to many in the industry will now be available at a lower cost.


“The next challenge is to work towards becoming the first organisation in Europe to provide garages with access to Manufacturer Security Technical Information. With this accreditation we will be able to assist reputable garages across the UK in accessing this all important information in a tightly controlled and cost effective way.”
