Product approval & certification

BBA certification is recognised throughout the construction industry as a symbol of quality and reassurance. It's the vital ingredient in the provision of assurance, quality and integrity to a plethora of stakeholders in the construction industry.

Product Approval & Certification

BBA certification is recognised by architects, building planners, Local Authorities, contractors and inspectors as the leading impartial product approval and certification body in the market. Our certificates are awarded to products in the construction sector after having passed a series of comprehensive and rigorous assessments which are tailored to the individual needs of the manufacturer and in line with building specification guidelines.


Product Credibility

As well as specialising in the BBA’s core business, Agrément Certification, our Product Approval & Certification (PAC) business unit also deals with many other parts of the services we offer. These include HAPAS (Highways Authority Product Approval Services), BIM (Building Information Modelling) Object Assurance and an all-encompassing expanse of products contained within the building and construction envelope.

These range from services in support of CE marking such as European Technical Assessments (ETA’S), a U-Value Competency Scheme, Secured by Design Certification and a number of bespoke assessment and thermal modelling services.

Our certification is UKAS accredited and widely known throughout the construction industry as a symbol of quality and reassurance. It is a vital ingredient for product manufacturers to help ensure acceptance with specifiers, building control, Local Authorities and insurers. We work with you to achieve the approval of construction products through our robust test and assessment schemes.
