Kiwa UK Water Regs Testing & Certification

The Kiwa UK Product Approval Scheme provides an alternative to the established and traditional methods of obtaining approvals and certificates.

By utilising the existing system of product certification within Kiwa, we are able to offer a Kiwa UK certificate to prove compliance with the local requirements within the UK. 
Product Groups such as sanitary Tap ware, WC suites and various types of water supply valves can be accommodated with this scheme, because there are common  European Standards such as EN1111, EN817, EN1287. It has been demonstrated that mosts tests are equivalent to the UK regulators specifications.

We provide a complete testing and certification service for sanitary and plumbing products and components.

Kiwa Watertec is a member of the AAC. Here is a link to the AAC Constitution.

Who is this for?

Manufacturers and distributors of sanitary and plumbing products and components destined for the UK and wider European market.

Why Kiwa?

Within the Kiwa expert group of Sanitary Appliances, there are many products groups that have a product Certification Scheme already existing, mainly based on the European Standards. Therefore, by performing some additional tests to demonstrate compliance with the local UK mechanical and performance requirements, Kiwa will be able to issue a Kiwa UK certificate, subject to compliance with the requirements for construction materials i.e. BS6920.
