The LIA & BSI Bring You the Future of Lighting Certification

The LIA & BSI Bring You the Future of Lighting Certification

The Lighting Industry Association (LIA) and the BSI Group (British Standards Institution) can now announce the intention to bring the lighting industry a new Product Verification Scheme that will carry the BSI Kitemark™.

This builds on the agreement, announced in July, which allowed customers of both organisations to benefit from mutual expertise and specialisms, thus finally provided a truly joined up approach in offering services to the industry.

The BSI Kitemark™ was one of the first quality marks in the world and is over 110 years old and is one of the most recognised symbols of quality and safety throughout the world today with recognition of greater than 82% amongst the UK population.

This ground-breaking scheme will give the industry a truly world leading third party verification scheme, which includes product performance as well as safety, meaning where you see the certification you will be able to not only trust the safety of the product but also the manufacturers performance claims.

As part of the new joined up approach the testing and auditing of products can be performed at the LIA’s laboratory in Telford. As Europe's largest independent test laboratory dedicated to lighting and the leading provider for testing and certification within the industry, you can be confident your products are in the best of hands.

The combined approach in bringing this scheme to market will be fundamental in the future development of the lighting industry, helping it to face new challenges in terms of quality, safety and providing trusted market assurance.
