We have asked all test laboratories that are currently recognised, to apply for recognition against the new policy by 30thJune 2020. WRAS Approvals will write to each laboratory that has met the requirements for recognition and then the test laboratory will be listed on the WRAS website from 4th September 2020, if it has requested such listing in its application.
WRAS will also allow recognition applications to be submitted from any ISO 17025 accredited test laboratories & any appropriate first party test laboratories from the 1st July 2020.
If a laboratory that is currently recognised chooses not to apply for recognition under the new scheme, test reports produced by that laboratory will no longer be accepted as part of a new application for WRAS Approval.
WRAS Approvals will stop accepting test reports but with the following transitional arrangements:
After 14th July 2020, applicants seeking WRAS approvals should check with their chosen test laboratory that any testing will be recognised by WRAS and that their laboratory is listed on the WRAS website.
