Product certification is the ultimate endorsement of a product's performance.
Products will always be made to achieve a particular performance, whether it's to a British, European or International test standard or simply to the manufacturer's own in-house specification. The manufacturer will then sell his product on the basis of compliance to that specification.
In today's market, specifiers want greater confidence in a product than a manufacturer's declaration. They want evidence from a reliable independent source to confirm that the product:
- has been properly tested and appraised
- is manufactured to a consistent high standard
