BASEC Accredited for EU Certification

Independent accredited certification body for the global cable industry, BASEC, has achieved notified body listing for a new subsidiary in Ireland as part of its Brexit contingency planning.

The listing for BASEC Conformity Limited, NB 2851 which was achieved via The Irish National Accreditation Board (INAB) will co-exist with an existing accreditation for BASEC UK LIMITED NB 2661 from the UK’s national accreditation body, UKAS. 

BASEC applied in early 2018 for CPR status via INAB which was granted in September 2019.

On 18th February 2020 Nando approved BASEC Conformity Limited under EU Directive 305/2011 Construction products.

The effect of the new accreditation is to ensure that, regardless of the trading relationship established between the UK and the European union after the Brexit transition period ends on 31st December 2020, BASEC will still be able to manage CPR certifications via BASEC UK or BASEC Conformity.

BASEC’s understanding under AVCP system 3 requirements is that any test and classification reports issued prior to the end of the transition period will remain valid and recognised throughout the EU, and will then be subject to any changes introduced by the new trade agreement.

The organisation describes the recent development as “an important milestone” in ensuring it can provide certainty for its customers that their certificates, test and classification reports will remain valid when the UK leaves the EU.
