BSI, the business improvement company, has been designated as a notified body1 by the Netherlands Government and European Commission for the Gas Appliances Regulation and Pressure Equipment Directive. This follows BSI’s designation as a notified body for the Construction Products Regulation and the Personal Protective Equipment Regulation in the Netherlands in January and July this year respectively.
Last year, the Dutch Ministry of Health and European Commission appointed BSI as a Medical Devices notified body in the country for active implantable medical devices, medical devices and in vitro diagnostic medical devices.
Howard Kerr, Chief Executive at BSI said: “These latest designations represent further validation for our continued strategy to grow our two product conformity notified bodies in the UK and Netherlands. Our overarching aim is to benefit industry both in the UK and overseas.
“For clients who wish to have continued market access in the event of a no deal Brexit, they can request to migrate their existing conformity assessment certificates to our Netherlands notified body. This is a relatively straightforward administrative process that will provide clients with vital stability.”

These bodies carry out tasks related to conformity assessment procedures set out in the applicable EU legislation, when a third party is required.
