Case Study

Supporting the inspection of mortuaries

UKAS, the UK Accreditation Body, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Human Tissue Authority (HTA) relating to work in the post mortem sector. The collaboration between the UKAS and the HTA aims to reduce the burden of regulation on organisations that are subject to site-visit inspection by the HTA and assessment by UKAS, whilst maintaining public confidence in post mortem services.

Further information on how accreditation is supporting the regulation of post mortems and mortuaries is available on the HTA website.
