Factory Production Control (FPC)

Supporting UKCA and UKTA

BBA provides certification for FPC (Factory Production Control) to support UKCA and UKNI Marking and CE Marking in conjunction with European Notified Body (NB) partners.

An FPC is a detailed audit at your factory monitoring the production of your goods, confirming they are manufactured to the relevant industry standard.

Under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) 2013, CE marking of construction products placed in the European and UK markets became mandatory where the product is covered by a harmonised European Standard (hEN), this remains the case for products being placed on the market in the EU.

This means you MUST obtain Factory Production Control Certification.

Why Factory Production Control Certification is Important

Post-Brexit, the UKCA has introduced new markings, UKCA and UKNI, that will replace CE marking for the UK. Details of this can be found here.

To achieve these markings you MUST also obtain Factory Production Control Certification. A UKAS accreditation allows the BBA to offer certification for FPC under a number of different British Standards.

Note: BBA are a UKAS Accredited Certification Body (No 0113 and 4345) covering management systems, site inspections and other services.
