How do we apply to become a A3 / BARA certified robot integrator?

plus minus

All companies certified under the A3 / BARA Robot Integrators’ Certification Scheme are required to be re-audited every two years. The UK Scheme A3 auditor will notify all certified companies prior to the end of the certification period. Companies must complete and return the ‘Biennial Integrator Re-certification Assessment Form’ to the auditor before the end of the two-year certification period. This includes the cost for re-certification. Re-certification requires the certified robot integrator to complete a new self-assessment. This enables the auditor to establish whether there have been any major changes since the previous certification audit. Should the re-certification period elapse without satisfying the payment terms of assessment form requirement, the applicant company will be treated as a new integrator and will again need to meet the cost of a first audit. No registration fee will apply if previously paid. Cost(s) for re-certification is available here.
