*This transfer process applies to UKAS accredited certificates. Please consider that any open non conformities might influence the issuance of new certificate. Please note the time between last audit and transfer audit, must not exceed 12 Months.  We can not issue a certificate valid beyond the previous certification body's expiry date without a recertification audit. This guidance is consistent with the requirements of internationally recognised mandatory documents regarding accredited management system audits.
