New award is essential part of strategy to promote compliance, says BMA
A new industry award which was won for the first time by Roman is an essential part of a strategy to raise awareness of the dangers of using non-compliant bathroom products, says Bathroom Manufacturers Association CEO Yvonne Orgill.
The BMA sponsored the NHIC award for Innovation & Initiatives to Promote Consumer Safety through Compliance in Bathroom Products & Installation, which was announced at a gala presentation dinner on 22nd November.
"We launched this award with the NHIC to identify innovative schemes or best-in-class educational practises that were aimed at driving compliance across the industry," explains Yvonne. "I am delighted that Roman has won and set the benchmark for best practice for others to follow.
"Its submission illustrated that all its products conform to and exceed the CE Marking Standards. By meticulously testing the performance and endurance of the products, Roman also ensures a declaration of performance is made available to customers, therefore making it available for anyone to see.
"Roman clearly demonstrated its best-in-class approach and conformity on all its literature, product instruction manuals, website and also on the individual products themselves, allowing customers quick and easy ways to have confidence that the products conform and are safe to use."
NHIC chief executive Anna Scothern adds: "To maintain the highest standards of improvement in the Nation's housing stock it is vital we reward those organisations who are striving for and delivering excellence. Congratulations to Roman for winning this important inaugural award and to all the other 2018 winners, they are all leaders in their fields."
