NSAI Certification UK Ltd has achieved accreditation from UKAS (UK Accreditation Service) for their work under the UK CPR (Construction Products Regulation).
A subsidiary of the National Standards Authority of Ireland, the company was set up to facilitate trade between Irish businesses and Great Britain, post-Brexit. With the UK being Ireland’s second biggest export market after the US, NSAI’s mission is to help Irish companies achieve UKCA marking allowing them to place or continue to place products on the marketplace in England, Scotland and Wales thus reducing barriers to trade.
