The BBA is far more than just Agrément certification however. Take the Test Department for example, which aims to provide clients with the confidence that through our rigorous testing and expertise, their product will be challenged to reach the required standard for its given use, thus mitigating their risk within the intended market.
The BBA’s Test offering is an industry leader in the standards for testing. The BBA is accredited by UKAS for a set of essential tests and, for the tests that are not covered under this accreditation, the BBA ensures a standard that exceeds that of UKAS. This means that regardless of client requirements, testing is of the highest standard.
As a UKAS-accredited body, the BBA also undergoes its own set of annual checks through audits by UKAS, providing even greater assurance that the benefits that clients receive, are those that adhere to the strictest of guidelines and that best practices continue to be established.
Partnering with our clients means that the BBA helps to mitigate risk during a product’s development by providing testing at any stage of its lifecycle; be it pre-launch, during development or on-going testing once a product is on the market. In addition, bespoke testing can be done to meet whatever the client’s needs are at any given time. This specificity means even for products that are innovative or similar to existing ones with small variations, the BBA’s test facilities can provide the testing required that suits and supports the clients product development goals.
Through the broad and extensive experience and expertise across many products sectors, which includes materials, physics, engineering and more, the BBA Test department knows the right questions to ask clients so that the right information is obtained about their products and the testing requirements needed which helps mitigate financial and technical risks are established.
