What is a BSi Verification Certificate?

As per the BSi website:

At BSI we are asked to certify many fantastic innovations that meet a specific objective (e.g. a new technology for extinguishing a fire). However, because it’s new and innovative, there often isn’t a suitable standard to certify the product against.

Fear not, there are a few ways to solve this problem, especially if you think outside of the ‘standard’ box.

An independent overview of the product and/or process by industry experts can often give you a beneficial advantage in the market place. Verification considers both the type testing to a standard (or equivalent), and a review of the technical file. If this is successfully approved, the certificate is issued, without the need for ongoing surveillance or assessment visits to be carried out as part of the verification process.
