These are unprecedented times. Even with business continuity plans and effective management systems in place, dealing with the effect of the global COVID-19 crisis presents challenges for any business. There are a number of considerations to make, with risk factors affecting employees, business operations and service users. As part of our commitment to support clients, and in line with our partnership approach to effective risk management, Bureau Veritas UK has prepared the UK COVID-19 Resource Centre.

Here we explore the remote services we can offer your business at this difficult time, documents that guide businesses through this time whilst maintaining risk management and library of links that can support your workforce through this pandemic.

Of course, the situation is constantly changing. Any specific guidance or instruction from the Government is liable to change and you should check the relevant websites listed on this page.

If you need any further support on any aspect of risk management, you can contact Bureau Veritas on 0345 600 1828. Or, if you are an existing Bureau Veritas client, your usual contacts are also available to answer any specific questions.

We have built a number of bespoke remote services to support your business manage health, safety and risk during this challenging time:

Hygiene, Sanitary, Certification, Bio safety


Workplaces remain at risk from an outbreak of infectious disease. Drawing on experiences from COVID-19, Bureau Veritas has developed Biosafety Certification - taking a management systems approach to implement sanitary measures that reduce the risk of contamination and ensure a safe working environment for employees, customers and visitors.

The standard for Biosafety Certification has been developed by experts in health and safety certification from the Bureau Veritas team, applying the latest guidance in infectious disease risk management strategies.

Restart your business with Bureau Veritas


To support organisations in building a safe return to work we have created an independent assurance of safety and compliance solution. This comprehensive solution is delivered through a five-stage process which includes; project kick-off and preparation, system assessment, site assessment, reporting and traceability.  

We have also developed a public website to provide full transparency for your customers with real-time updates of new sites that are granted assurance.

Verify 360 - Shepper



These are challenging times for any organisation. From social distancing and signage, to new cleaning regimes and opening hours, your business has changed in ways it has never needed to until now.

We understand these challenges and we’re here to support you in demonstrating best practice in the COVID-era. That’s why Bureau Veritas has teamed up with Shepper, a specialist data collection business, to launch Verify 360.

Remote worker


With current guidelines for non-essential workers to work from home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, organisations retain a duty of care to ensure that, far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of employees are protected. This includes display equipment, keyboard and mouse quality.

To support our clients in meeting that duty of care, Bureau Veritas has developed a comprehensive Remote Worker Assessment, available via video link from a member of our renowned health and safety team.

Remote Auditing webinar


Our remote training offering can ensure that your employees can still benefit from first-class training whilst working from home under the current restrictions.

Bureau Veritas eLearning offers flexible, cost-effective, 24/7 access to training resources and a host of interactive elements, allowing your employees to complete training modules at a convenient time.

Virtual classroom training is led online, live by a real tutor, which allows us to train people anywhere in the world as if they were all in a room together. We have created bite-size Virtual Classroom courses to meet your business needs at this time.

Remote auditing


In order to help our clients and reduce issues when we are able to return to normal site-based audits, we are pleased to be able to offer remote Management System Audits, covering partly routine audits including surveillance, re-certification and transfer.

This service has been put in place to help maintain your accredited certification and continue our standard of service in the best way possible, whilst ensuring the health and safety of our staff.



In these unprecedented times, we understand that businesses in the food value chain may find it difficult to navigate the restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic can bring some unique challenges.

To support you through these challenges, using our sector knowledge and regulatory understanding, our specialist food team can support your business. We have created a direct line that connects your organisation with our food experts.
