SAFed, a not-for-profit trade association, serves as the leading representative body for independent engineering inspection and certification industries in the UK and Ireland.

The organisation is instrumental in maintaining the highest possible safety standards within the workplace by acting as a focal point for all issues and concerns related to statutory inspection and certification, as well as the safe use and operation of plant, machinery, and equipment.

Furthering our expertise

NECIT’S accession to a full member of SAFed signifies our dedication to furthering our expertise and commitment to ensuring safety and compliance across various industry sectors.

SAFed is a crucial resource for individuals and organisations involved in establishing, maintaining, or complying with standards for equipment inspection and safety standards in the workplace. Through SAFed, members gain access to invaluable advice, guidance, information, and experience.

SAFed full members are accredited by UKAS to ISO17020, the international standard for Inspection Bodies, which specifies the requirements for the expertise of performing inspection and for the impartiality and consistency of their inspection activities.

NECIT Services Ltd achieved United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) accreditation for our Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) services last year, raising our existing ISO 17020 certification as a Type A Independent Inspection Body for Weld Procedure Certification and ISO 17024 Personnel Certification Body for Welder Qualification Certification.

Plus, we are the only company in the UK accredited to conduct NDT in line with the Rail Industry standard RIS-2701-RTS.

Commenting on the achievement, our Technical Director Pete Lyons states: “Becoming a full member of SAFed is a significant accomplishment for our team here at NECIT. It reflects our unwavering commitment to ensuring the safety and compliance of workplaces throughout several industries. We are very excited and look forward to collaborating with SAFed and its members.”

This membership further solidifies NECIT’s role as a key contributor to safeguarding workplace safety and maintaining the highest industry standards.
