FAST TRACK - A new service from WRAS

WRAS is offering fast-track approval assessments for manufacturers.

Each Assessment cycle, 10 applicants can now opt to have their application fast-tracked before our regular Product Approvals Advisory Group review meetings. These opportunities, are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

T​his allows applicants who have a reduced window to gain an approval, the opportunity to have their application reviewed first and have direct feedback on any issues identified.

What are the benefits ?

Our team has years of experience in certification, testing, product design, manufacturing and understanding the Water Fittings Regulations.

A fast-track assessment can:

  • Identify and resolve queries much more quickly
  • Identify any queries with the test report (resolution will depend on your chosen test laboratory)
  • A fast-track application will be reviewed first and any queries discussed directly with you – maximising the opportunities to resolve queries
  • Speed up the overall approval process.

H​ow much will it cost?

  • A​ Fast-Track assessment will cost £100 plus VAT per application.
  • This will be paid directly to WRAS and is in addition to the standard application fees.
