The Kitemark was first introduced by BSI (the British Standards Institute) in 1903. It is commonly found on many products, including construction products. It indicates that the product has been independently tested by BSI to confirm that it complies with relevant British Standards, and that BSI have licensed the product manufacturer to use the Kitemark.
This is not the same as CE marking. CE stands for Communauté Européenne. CE marking signifies that a product complies with relevant safety, health or environmental regulations across the European Economic Area (EEA).
