IFC Certification agreement with Applus+
Settling doubts about the new UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) mark and what it means for the sale of CE marked products in the UK market, IFC Certification and Applus+ Laboratories have reached a bilateral agreement, following Brexit, ensuring both parties maintain a seamless transition of their fire safety certification services.
This arrangement allows both certification bodies to continue providing their fire safety product compliance services in the UK and EU markets, respectively. This is important for satisfying the market demands of clients, whose products will legally require a UKCA mark in the UK market as directed by the UK government, while continuing with a CE mark for the EU and UK market until formally withdrawn.
Such agreement benefits clients as they will get both marks without having to repeat the same processes or testing (subject to technical peer review).
It is another recognition for fire safety testing and certification that strengthens our global standing and opens the door further to the worldwide market.
