The British Board of Agrément (BBA), the leading UK certification body for construction products, is collaborating with Bureau Veritas (BV), a world leader in testing, inspection, and certification, to deliver dual CE and UKCA marking to manufacturers of construction products according to EU and UKCA Construction Products Regulations.
Jason Harries, Product Lead, BBA, said, “At the BBA we are committed to removing complexity for our clients; such as the changes post-Brexit and the transition to UKCA Marking. We believe in helping our clients get the results they need, as quickly as possible. This collaboration with Bureau Veritas, means that we can support our clients who have manufacturing facilities in a number of European countries. Through working together, we help our clients save time and cost that often accrue as a result of additional inspection. With the added benefit of reducing our carbon footprints through avoiding unnecessary travel.”
BBA is designated as an approved body by the UK Government for construction products regulation in the UK. BV is a notified body for the purposes of the EU’s Construction Products Regulation (No. 305-2011) in 11 countries: Italy, Spain, Portugal, Slovenia, Turkey, Latvia, Greece, the Netherlands, Finland, Austria and Denmark. Thanks to their partnership, manufacturers of construction products will be able to benefit from dual CE and UKCA markings.
Karine Kutrowski, Industrial Product Certification Vice President, Bureau Veritas, said, “We’re pleased to collaborate with the British Board of Agrément (BBA) to provide services for certification and surveillance of Factory Production Control (FPC) for the manufacture of construction products. This partnership will offer our clients more support in achieving dual regulatory compliance and access to both the EU and UK markets.”
