The Bathroom Manufacturers Association has reaffirmed its commitment to compliance by embarking on an ethics audit for its members, requiring all full members of the organisation to sign up to its code of ethics.
The BMA’s code of ethics covers the integrity of the company across areas such as competition, environmental credentials, training and anti-corruption as well as compliance, the organisation said.
“We are stepping up our campaign on non-compliance in the bathroom industry, so it is a logical first step to ensure that our own house is in order, and that all members are adhering to the standards set in the code of ethics,” said BMA CEO designate Tom Reynolds.
“We will be supporting companies that uncover any deficiencies in complying with the code and working with them to bring them back into compliance.”
He added: “Compliance is a major issue in the bathroom industry, with many retailers and manufacturers not understanding their legal obligations. It is a complex area, with many pieces of legislation and the water regulations to consider.”
