Who we are


BRE Global Ireland was established in 2018 to provide our clients with robust CE Marking services, testing, certification, and training in a post-Brexit environment.

What is the CE Mark?


The affixation of a CE Mark to a product is a declaration to the end-user that a product has met the requirements of European standards. Coupled with the Declaration of Performance (DoP), this allows end-users to determine the performance of a product and compare this with other products under a common technical approach.

The benefits of CE Certification

  • Constancy of performance
  • Ability to sell the product in any country of the European Internal Market
  • Health & Safety
  • Encourages continual improvement of manufacturing processes
  • Widely recognised outside the EU as a benchmark

Routes to CE Marking

In cases where a client has developed an innovative product but may not be able to gain the CE mark under an existing EN standard, a new route known as an EAD has been opened up.

This provides the facility whereby an entirely new standard can be developed and it can lead ultimately to the award of the CE mark.

BRE Global are very active in this area, and we welcome enquiries from parties that are interested in gaining the CE mark for innovative solutions.

What are Construction Product Regulations?

The Construction Product Regulations (CPR) encompass a series of directives established by the European Union (EU) that are applicable to construction products traded or distributed within the EU single market.

What is the Marine Equipment Directive?

To ensure the safety of equipment used on ships, the Marine Equipment Directive (MED) requires that products be accredited with the Wheelmark symbol. Once a product is approved, safety certificates are issued by member states of the European Union or their authorised representatives.

INAB Accreditation

BRE Global Ireland is accredited to ISO 17065. This accreditation was awarded by INAB, who audit BREGI annually in early March. Each audit focuses on different aspects of the accreditation standards, as well as a general overview of ongoing activities.

EC Notification

The successful maintenance of our accreditation is critical to maintaining our EC notification. Our EC notification is effectively our license to trade.

Please note that as of January 1st, 2023, BRE Global Ireland has withdrawn accreditation for ISO 17020 directive (TPED) so any certificates related to that directive no longer valid.

Before I joined BRE Global Ireland, I developed my career in Administration and Customer Service at different companies in Madrid and Dublin, but it was in my last job when I started a new path that has defined my future expectations. I started working in Project Management in an environmental company based in DCU Alpha and I have brought this experience with me to BRE where I feel in the right place to keep improving my skills in an innovative construction environment.
