Q-Mark

Don’t take the risk - Insist on third party certification: EXOVA BM TRADA Q MARK.

As a specifier, purchaser or contractor, you are likely to be procuring a wide range of products and services. In the case of a complex and potentially lifesaving product how can you be certain that the product you choose will perform and that you have done everything you can to mitigate against the risk of failure? By specifying that the product has independent third party certification.

What is independent third party certification?

Independent third party certification is the highest form of endorsement a product can achieve and is being increasingly specified. Approved document B makes it clear that this is the preferred route for demonstrating performance of Fire Doors, whilst third party certification of Doors & Windows is a mandatory requirement for Secured by Design (SBD).

To attain third party certification, a manufacturer and their product will have to undergo a rigorous process. 

The benefits of Independent Third-Party Certification

Here’s why you should specify independent third party certification:

  • Consistency of product quality at all times
  • Independent verification by a qualified expert
  • Ensures product is fit for intended purpose
  • Ensures the product is safe to use
  • Mitigates against the risk of failure
  • A recognised and accepted quality standard 
  • A commercially sound investment
