Third-party certification distinguishes products and services from their competitors, and gives customers confidence about their performance.
Certification is independent confirmation by an expert third party that a product, system or service meets, and continues to meet, appropriate standards.
BRE Global provides independent, third-party certification of fire, security and environmental products and services. Our status as a UKAS accredited laboratory reflects our competence and impartiality.
Certification gives you confidence that products and services will perform as expected - through a combination of regular company audits and a schedule of ongoing auditing. It benefits both suppliers and purchasers:
Suppliers can demonstrate to customers that their products and services meet the appropriate standards. This can enable companies to access and sell into new markets.
Purchasers can trust third-party certified products and services to meet set standards, and therefore avoid costly mistakes and reduce risk.
Our third-party certification services include:
LPCB - many insurers and specifiers look for the LPCB mark of approval when dealing with fire and security issues.
