Quality assurance

The Technical expertise of BRMCA Members is second to none, and this is independently verified by either one of two third party Certification Bodies, accredited by UKAS:


The schemes operate independently and provide BS EN ISO 9000:2000 and product conformity certification for the design, production and supply of ready mixed concrete to BS EN 206-1 and BS8500.

QSRMC and BSI Kitemark Scheme for ready-mixed concrete set the highest certification standards where ALL BRMCA MEMBERS must be accredited against these requirements.

QSRMC is the specific Industry scheme, concentrating solely on the production and control of Ready-Mixed Concrete, with BSI offering a range of services out to the industry.

Companies awarded QSRMC or BSI certification are licensed to use the Certification Mark on literature and documentation, including quotations and delivery tickets.

The QSRMC & BSI Kitemark Schemes are the best known and most widely specified certification mark for ready-mixed concrete. All BRMCA members are required to hold accredited third party quality assurance for their plants, as this provides independent assurance that the quality is as specified and in conformity to BS8500-2 and BS EN 206-1. The Regulations and the assessment standards are under the control of a Governing Board, the members of which are directly involved either in specifying/purchasing concrete or in supplying the product.

Assessment and certification staff all undergo an extensive initial training and continuing professional development programme which, by building on their previous experience as consulting engineers, materials engineers, contractors and from within the ready-mixed concrete industry, enhances and maintains their expertise in concrete and quality management systems. QSRMC and BSI are accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) for product conformity and quality management systems certification. Accreditation provides assurance that QSRMC and BSI operate in accordance with International Standards.

The cost of quality assured concrete is nothing compared to the cost of any remedial works if there is a problem
