The Bathroom Manufacturers Association is the Trade Body for all manufacturing businesses supplying the UK bathroom market.
The Association has two main focus areas: sustainability and product compliance. On sustainability, we are helping our members take the next steps to improve their green credentials, whether its on water efficiency, reducing waste or helping to reduce the environmental impact of their operations.
On product compliance, BMA members spend lots of time and money to make sure products comply with international standards and national regulations. Sadly, not all companies do the same, selling consumers short and risking their safety. It’s our mission to improve product compliance in the UK marketplace.
Alongside these two focus areas, we provide full members with a host of technical benefits through a series of committees. As an association, we influence topics that are pertinent to our members, lobbying on legislation and participate in national and international standards committee.
Through this activity, we provide members with early warnings on changes in the industry. Via our members-only website, they have access to a library of information when they need it.
Our members also benefit from the association’s policy activity. The Association facilitates engagement with Government departments and parliamentarians to grow the sector’s collective influence. We work alongside allied organisations to punch above our weight with policymakers.
We regularly respond to Government consultations and sit on forums to ensure the bathroom sectors voice is heard in business representative organisations.
One of the most significant benefits of the association is the networking opportunities we provide where members can network with industry peers. Our packed calendar (COVID aside) includes parliamentary events, forums and our industry conference.
