A strong set of results, like this, strengthens our competitive position.
Hugh Lawson, our compliance manager welcoming the results said: ’Achilles UVDB Verify Audits are different from other Management systems as there is a percentage score given based on the organisation’s performance. A comprehensive audit check list is completed over a 2 day audit every year with an Achilles Auditor. Each year the percentage score allows us to continually improve our processes and benchmark against other companies’ performance.'
