Don’t take the risk, insist on third party certification
Access Panels Direct has recently been awarded Q-Mark Certification by BM TRADA for their Fire Rated Access Panel Range.
Independent third-party product certification is the highest form of endorsement a product can achieve. Manufacturers whose products are certified can demonstrate to customers and specifiers not only that their products are fit for purpose and safe to use, but that they have satisfied the most rigorous of quality processes.
BM TRADA Q-Mark is a mark of certification for construction products. In order to achieve Q-Mark certification, members are required to prove that their products perform to the relevant standard and that stringent factory control processes such as ISO 9001:2000. are in place.
Once BM TRADA auditors have carried out their factory visit and are satisfied that all aspects of the production processes and appropriate quality systems are in place, a certificate is issued and members are allowed to use the Q-Mark logo on their products and literature. In order to retain their Q-Mark member status, a process of on-going auditing is undertaken to ensure that the high standards achieved by members are maintained.
BM TRADA Q-Mark is the brand name applied to the scheme operated by BM TRADA Certification, one of the UK’s foremost certification bodies with over 35 years experience and accredited by UKAS since 1991.
Q-Mark is recognised by home warranty providers such as NHBC (National House-Building Council) and used by world-class construction companies, local authorities and institutions.
