We live in a globalised world today – but how easy is it really, as a manufacturer abroad, to enter into the UK construction supply chain?

The honest answer is that any import requires research, logistics and, in our industry, the relevant certification to be able to reach the final consumer.

In the highly complex, dynamic and competitive construction environment in the UK, earning and maintaining BBA certification demonstrates a commitment to lifelong innovation and can open doors to the UK market.

The BBA Agrément Certificate is a mark of excellence based on rigorous national and European standards that validate a construction product’s specialist formulation, capability and uniqueness.

The benefits of being BBA approved are vast, including:

  • Trust – Being a gold standard in the UK construction industry, helps establish suitability and trust in your product(s) for sale in the UK
  • New market opportunity – Being certified opens up more opportunities for use of your product in the UK
  • Regulatory Compliance – the confidence of complying to UK standards in an area that you may be unfamiliar with
  • Global Product – expanding your brand in its home market as a product with international appeal.

In this webinar, we covered the following:

  • What is the current state of international manufacturers importing products into the UK.
  • How does 3rd party certification enable market expansion for international companies into the UK
  • How product white-labelling works in the world of certification with distribution networks.
  • What the process is for product certification for companies outside of the UK

*The information contained in this webinar is correct to the best of the knowledge of the participants at the time of its recording, however comments are informal. Please seek legal advice before relying on it in terms of determining actions. The BBA and participants accept no liability for decisions made on the basis of such informal discussion.
