The BBA Agrément Certificates will be unaffected and remain the same as they are, outside of the CPR (Construction Products Regulation) regime. The same is true of the BBA’s accredited testing and inspection activities. The BBA is accredited and covered by UKAS, which is still a signatory to all of the relevant International mutual recognition schemes.
The only areas which may be affected are the CPR activities themselves. The complexity of this lies in a number of factors, including (but not limited to):
- the country you are based in
- the markets you sell into
- whether you’re using a harmonised European Standard route or an ETA (European Technical Assessment)
- the AVCP (Assessment and Verification of Constancy of Performance) level
- whether you currently have your third-party conformity tasks carried out by a UK or EU body
- where your ETA was issued
- whether your product is an existing or new product,
- whether it’s been altered in any way
Due to the complexities around this, we’re advising that if you are in any doubt whatsoever, you contact the BBA to gain clarity on this and the elements that directly affect your case.
