BSI Kitemark for Commercial Lighting Webinar

Industry & Regulatory News, EMEA
A recording of a webinar on the BSI (British Standards Institute) Kitemark™ for Commercial Lighting which was presented jointly with the Lighting Industry Association (LIA), is now available to watch online. The webinar was recorded live on 23 July to supplement the successful launch event of the new BSI Kitemark on 27 June held at the LIA offices in Telford.

 

The new scheme launched in partnership between the BSI and the LIA is designed to increase product safety and quality of the lighting products, at the same time help drive up standards and further reduce the risks of product recalls and returns. 

 

The webinar was presented by the BSI’s Electrical Certification Team Leader, Holly Rossington, and supported by the LIA’s CEO Steve Davies. 

 

In the webinar, Holly and Steve explain the scheme, educating on the value of the Kitemark and how to get involved to avail its advantages for their business. The video is peppered with industry polls and concludes with a Q&A session, generated from the audience questions from the launch event, and those asked by the webinar attendees. 

 

The BSI Kitemark for Commercial Lighting was born out of lighting industry concerns relating to the reported increase of low quality products being placed on the UK and EU markets.  

 

As the BSI Kitemark is a trusted brand throughout the world for over 100 years, the LIA’s decision to partner with the BSI was an easy one in addressing such an important issue. The two organisations, together through their combined knowledge and extensive expertise, can now provide a joined-up approach to third party certification. 

 

The LIA’s Steve Davies explained, “The aim of this Kitemark is to instil confidence and capability back into the supply chain and the lighting products placed on the market. 

“Unlike other similar schemes, the BSI Kitemark for Commercial Lighting not only confirms compliance with safety, but also supports performance testing claims.” 

 

BSI’s Holly Rossington added, “Webinars are an excellent way to address key topics that are affecting business, which can be viewed from anywhere in the on personal computing device. It is one of the key ways in which the BSI support their clients. 

“This webinar is a must for all those involved in the commercial lighting sector to understand how the new BSI Kitemark will strengthen businesses reputations and the industry as a whole.”
