BBA Certificates and their use in the waterproofing and damp proofing sector
A BBA Certificate is a mark of quality, safety and reliability of a products used in the construction industry.
A BBA Certificate provides reassurance that a product is fit for purpose and has passed a series of rigorous and comprehensive assessments (laboratory tests, on site evaluations, quality management checks and inspections of production).
The BBA (The British Board of Agrément) was established in 1966 with a view to develop a system which tested, inspected and certified manufacturers and installers to ensure they adhere to providing excellence and reassurance in their products.
Products that receive an Agrément Certificate are recognised by building control, government departments, architects, specifiers and industry insurers. Once a BBA Certificate has been awarded, regular monitoring is carried out by the BBA to maintain the Certificate’s validity. This is followed by a comprehensive review every three years.
