BBA Quality Control Specification
The BBA requires that all products or systems considered for approval be manufactured or installed in an environment which delivers products to a pre-defined standard and at a consistent level. Frequently this will require a management system based upon the International Standard ISO 9000. It is believed that a manufacturer who holds ISO 9000 certification by a UKAS accredited body will not need to add to their quality system.
BBA/BFRC Assessment of Window Manufacturers
A British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) Rating refers to a specific combination of frame and glass as installed. This is declared by the manufacturer, ie the fabricator or installer (the term ‘fabricator’ is used here) responsible for the fully glazed window, and only this specified combination is covered by the BFRC Rating.
