UKCA certification

The agreement signed with BBA allows the manufacturers to obtain, through the activities performed by IG, the UKCA certification for the products for which BBA is recognized.

This means that if the factory production control (FPC) has been alreday assessed by IG in accordance with VVCP 1 or 2+, it will not be necessary to carry out additional audits for obtaining the UKCA certification.
In case of VVCP 1 it will not even be necessary to perform additional testing.

Please refer to following table for the products and standards covered by the agreement with BBA. 


The British Board of Agrément (BBA)  is a UKAS accredited Certification Body established in Watford (UK) having the following recognitions for the UKCA certifications:
- “Approved Body”;
- “TAB (Technical Assessment Body)”.
