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