The LIAQA Award was introduced by the LIA to acknowledge the commitment to quality displayed by the participants of this unique quality scheme.
The LIA offers members this industry specific Quality Assurance solution, which addresses legislative and regulatory requirements specific to the lighting industry and is designed to operate as a robust standalone quality solution, or as a scheme to work in conjunction with ISO9001.
Using a modular approach and focusing on ‘product type’ specific requirements, LIAQA identifies the criteria for product acceptance, manufacturing process requirements, and the evidence that supports product conformity.
The LIAQA team analysed and deliberated over the one hundred and thirty plus LIAQA participants, using a variety of criteria, which culminated in three companies being nominated for the 2019 Award.
Ansell Lighting were announced as the Winners at the LIA Annual Lunch, held at Drapers Hall on the 2 May 2019. The other worthy nominees were NET LED Lighting and Tala.

The award was presented to Operations Director Jason Dwan by LIA’s CEO, Steve Davies.
