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. BRE Global is a UKAS accredited certification body, No.0007.

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.
