The Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA) has announced that it has achieved Primary Authority Status with Nottinghamshire Trading standards. The BMA achieved Primary Authority Status, a formal partnership that is recognised in statute and overseen by the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS), having been successfully nominated by the Secretary of State.

Tom Reynolds, CEO of the BMA said: “This is an important milestone in our campaign on compliance. The BMA and its members will have access to formalised advice and guidance on compliance matters, and it signals to the industry our commitment to champion those that invest in bringing compliant products to market.

“Gaining this status allows us to push forward our plans including a code of ethics audit. We will also introduce a market surveillance system, which will allow members to raise awareness of cases of non-compliance.

“We are determined to ramp up the noise on the compliance issue and create a level playing field, so that companies that invest in compliance are not disadvantaged in the market place by those that neglect their responsibilities.”
