Who we are

Founded in 2018, BRE Global Ireland specialises in providing comprehensive CE Marking services and certification. We offer expertise in CE certification for products under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) and Marine Equipment Directive (MED).

The CE mark and European standards are recognised globally, often serving as prestigious benchmarks and providing commercial benefits to compliant products.

As a trusted Technical Assessment Body, BRE Global Ireland assists clients with innovative products that do not conform to existing harmonised standards. We provide an alternative route to CE marking through European Assessment Documents (EADs) and European Technical Assessments (ETAs), developed by the European Organisation for Technical Approvals (EOTA). These routes allow for the creation of new standards or the assessment of non-standard products.

EADs offer the same legal standing as the traditional hEN route for CE marking. As EOTA members, BRE Global Ireland offers full support throughout the application process, ensuring a seamless journey from inception to certification.

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

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.
