Conformity Assessment Body

We are a Conformity Assessment Body (CAB) for the EMC parts of Mutual Recognition Agreements between the EU and the US, and the EU and Australia and New Zealand.

What is a CAB?

Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) are testing and calibration laboratories, certification bodies as well as inspection bodies that provide conformity assessment services.

As a CAB, Eurofins York (formerly York EMC Services) is assessed on its competence, impartiality and capability to offer specified conformity assessment services, for example testing.

In the UK CAB status is gained through accreditation by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) which provides customers and regulatory authorities enhanced confidence. Certificates that are issued by accredited CABs are more likely to be regarded as having higher credibility.

UKAS is a signatory to various Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) meaning that reports and certificates will be recognised among the MRA partners.
