Current Bathroom Manufacturers Association – BMA – CEO Yvonne Orgill has been named CEO of the Unified Water Label – UWL – with the announcement being made at a special event organised by the European Bathroom Forum – EBF – at ISH in Frankfurt.

The event was attended by 115 companies, with EBF chair Carlos Velazquez giving an overview of the work towards a Voluntary Agreement. Orgill was previously a director of the UWL. She will also be stepping down from her role as BMA CEO at the end of this year, with Tom Reynolds named as her successor.

“I am delighted to take on the CEO role with UWL,” said Orgill. “I will be working alongside Tom Reynolds, CEO designate at BMA, to ensure continuity at the BMA over the coming months.”

She said: “It was fantastic to see such support for the UWL at this event, especially from DG Environment. They gave their support and reinforced their intention to work with us towards the goal of a Voluntary Agreement.

“It is now important for the industry to progress the 80% target of units sold and demonstrate they are doing this. Our Independent Inspector from RSM Global was at the event; they will commence the task of justifying the current market share of the Scheme (in units) as the base to work from.”

Orgill added: “There are still some formal steps be undertaken over the coming weeks and months but if these all proceed as planned we could see The UWL Voluntary Agreement launched in 2021.”
