Today is a landmark day in the history of IntaForensics.
We have received formal notification from UKAS of our success in achieving accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and the Forensic Science Regulator’s Codes of Practice and Conduct for cell site analysis.
We are the first organisation to receive this accreditation from UKAS and we believe we are potentially the first organisation in the world to achieve this recognition.
IntaForensics Managing Director, Damian Walton said,
“I am absolutely delighted to hear this news and receive the formal confirmation of our accreditation. To be the first organisation granted accreditation by UKAS and possibly the only company in the world is an amazing achievement. I want to pay tribute and express my gratitude to the incredible team who have worked tirelessly to make this possible.”
“Led by Carl Osborne and Steph Curwen, all of their cell site team have contributed to this success and should be extremely proud of their efforts. The quality management aspects of the accreditation, delivered by IntaForensics Quality Manager Mary Geddes, ensured that all elements of the accreditation requirements were met.”
IntaForensics Head of the Digital Investigations Unit, Carl Osborne accreditation project lead commented:
“This is such fantastic news for the team at IntaForensics, this achievement would not have been possible without the dedicated analysts we have in the unit. To manage this project alongside day-to-day casework has been nothing short of remarkable. We also would like to thank the quality team who have worked alongside us every step of the way, this is a proud day for the IntaForensics team.
IntaForensics would like to thank David Compton and his staff at UKAS for their commitment to the pilot scheme and the developments in cell site analysis accreditation. UKAS’s continued assessment process allows us to demonstrate the technical competence of our organisation and offers confidence in our accredited operations, as detailed on our schedule of accreditation.
We look forward to the challenge of maintaining and continually improving our cell site operations. For more information about our Digital Investigation Unit and their work in Cell Site Analysis, please contact us.
