Emergency lighting specialist, P4 Limited, recently celebrated achieving certification to its first BSI Kitemark BS EN 62034:2012 automatic test systems for battery powered emergency escape lighting. P4 was awarded with a certificate by BSI at LuxLive – Europe’s largest annual lighting event.
P4’s Fastel Automatic Testing and Monitoring Systems were rigorously tested by BSI to achieve the Kitemark. Additionally, P4’s manufacturing sites and quality plans have also undergone comprehensive assessment to achieve certification.
P4’s Managing Director, Rob Warner, explains why this is a significant step for the company:
“Despite having gained a reputation for quality over the past 30 years, that’s no excuse to rest on our laurels. We’re always looking for ways to improve our service and the Kitemark certification – recognised globally as a mark of quality, safety and trust – does just that. We believe it sets us apart as a manufacturer that really cares about quality.”
Retaining Kitemark approval is an ongoing process. The company will undergo bi-annual manufacturing assessments, with product samples being taken for ongoing testing and review. Rob continues:
“The whole process of certification has helped us fine-tune our performance. But testing our systems is just the first step for us. We are continuing to work with BSI to achieve certification across all of our product ranges. We’re absolutely committed to this initiative and hope that it will help customers choose an emergency lighting system which has met the highest possible standards for quality, safety and performance,” he adds.
Holly Rossington, Electrical Certification Team Leader at BSI comments: “It was an honour to present P4 with a certificate at Europe’s largest annual lighting event. This is because BSI is committed to helping manufacturers like P4 achieve the Kitemark as it demonstrates that they operate to the highest possible standard. P4 should be delighted with this achievement, and we look forward to continuing to work together so that we can certify even more products to the Kitemark.”
