Tom Reynolds, the incoming BMA CEO, has communicated plans to tackle non-compliance in the bathroom industry.

Reynolds, speaking at a Compliance Seminar held the day before the 2019 Bathroom & Kitchen Business Conference, promised that the BMA is determined to ramp up the noise on the compliance issue.

He suggested that educating consumers and stakeholders, as well as lobbying government in order to break through the myths and lack of understanding about the level of non-compliance, is a priority.

“We will make our voices heard so that we can create a level playing field and eradicate those that continue to flout the law and put end users at risk,” said Reynolds. “The initiatives we have announced today will play an important role in helping us drive forward the compliance agenda” he added.

The seminar also included a preview of a new online tool, developed in partnership with Keele University. It has been designed to demystify what it means to be compliant and is aimed primarily at manufacturers, installers, retailers, and distributers. It will guide visitors through a process to help them identify what is required to confirm compliance.
