ISO14001 certification bodies complain of unfair competition
ISO14001 certification bodies in the UK are complaining at being undercut by competitors who are not recognised by the official UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) or any affiliated body. Some have called for such firms to be outlawed. But non-UKAS accredited bodies argue that they offer a legitimate service which they claim is better geared to client needs. One even boasts energy regulator Ofgem among its clients.
