If you are new to the assessment process for any of the Standards provided by UK Food Certification and are looking to have certification against the Standard, you may wish to consider a pre-assessment. These visits can be beneficial as our assessors will identify aspects of the Standard that you may not be conforming to, giving you the ability and time to prepare ahead of your full certificated assessment.
