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.

Audit and Inspection

Our Audit and Inspection unit comprises two areas: Construction and Management Systems. Construction focuses on installations and installers through inspections at various stages, whereas our Management Systems supports businesses through product quality manufacturing assessment and ISO services.


All about BBA Audit and Inspection

BBA Audit and Inspection maintains high standards of quality and safety in our industry. Products that have been tested and certified as safe and fit-for-purpose are subjected to continuous inspection by Audit and Inspection to make sure they remain so. Once a product has been certified, we work with manufacturers and building inspectors to make sure that standards don’t slip. This is done by regular inspection and auditing by our Audit and Inspection assessors.

Our impartial inspectors are experts in their field and take pride in delivering unbiased information on a range of products and installation requirements. We are trusted by the nation’s most reputable organisations and deliver technical monitoring services to four out of the six top energy providers in the country.
