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.

Test Services

Testing has been a key part of Agrément Certification for over 50 years. In that time our UKAS accredited Testing Facilities has extended to cover over 40 different products areas within the construction industry.

 

 

In 1985, the BBA set up a separate department specifically to undertake testing in support of BBA Certification. Since then BBA Test Services has become a UKAS accredited, independent test facility and now shares its many years of expertise and experience with manufacturers across the UK, and beyond.

We link with an extensive network of BBA-approved UK and European accredited laboratories to complement our current test activities. From Durability Testing to Offsite Testing, BBA Test Services does it all.
