Appliance-related testing and certification services

BSI has the tools to help you meet an array of regulatory requirements, including:

The BSI Kitemark™

Completely unique to us, BSI's Kitemark is a globally recognised symbol of quality and trust. Gas and electrical appliances that make the Kitemark grade are associated with high safety and quality standards and manufacturers often command a higher price as a result of certification.

CE Marking

If you want your gas or electrical appliance to display the CE Mark – the official sign of compliance to all European directives - we offer a comprehensive suite of testing and certification services so you can confidently display the CE symbol.

As a Notified Body appointed by the Government, we're able to certify for 17 EU Directives, including the Gas Appliance Directive, Boiler Efficiency Directive, EMC Directive, and Low Voltage Directive.
