Reassurance that product, process or company system are compliant with legislation. SATRA ensures that suppliers, manufacturers and brands achieve better integration and credibility, both in the supply chain and the marketplace.


Customers appreciate quality, and this can be crucial when deciding whether or not to remain loyal to a brand or supplier. Accreditation, certification and industry recognised awards play a vital role in the control of quality and, ultimately, in raising the value of the brand or supplier in the eyes of customers.



SATRA Technology Centre has developed a comprehensive accreditation and awards programme that can be used to demonstrate a commitment to high and consistent product and service quality.

For example, SATRA's Laboratory Accreditation recognises that testing plays a vital role in the control of product quality and that in-house test facilities are seen as a smart move by modern manufacturers. A SATRA Accredited Laboratory certificate on the wall has proved a major selling point in helping to attract and retain customer orders.

SATRA's Leather Grading Accreditation, the SATRA Cutting Award and SATRA Accredited Footwear Technologist (SAFT) are other programmes that have established industry value.



SATRA also offers a range of quality certification schemes for various industries, including the SATRA Quality Mark, as well as being a Notified Body for the CE marking of products under the EU Directives on personal protective equipment, toys, medical devices and construction products.

All accreditation, certification and awards involve assessment by trained SATRA auditors. All help maximise performance and quality of product and process. All can raise brand and product profile by assocaition with the globally respected SATRA brand or other industry recognised marks.
