Quality and approvals
Good design, high quality and maximum value have formed an integral part of the Bulgin philosophy throughout its history.
We maintain a documented quality plan specifying process and product goals and are approved by BSI to ISO9001:2000.
Investment in new plant and equipment makes an important contribution to continuous quality improvements. The risk of errors in the transition from design to manufacture is greatly reduced by the digital data flows from our CAD system, and our sophisticated automatic manufacturing equipment which can form and assemble components to consistently high quality standards.
All new products are extensively pre-production tested, in our dedicated electrical and mechanical test facility, which also conducts regular checks during manufacture. The numerous international safety approvals gained are testimony in themselves to Bulgin’s ongoing commitment to quality and the world wide market place.

The CE Marking Directive
Equipment bearing the CE mark is allowed free circulation throughout Europe. The products on this web site, when installed correctly, comply with the CE requirements where it relates to them.
The Low Voltage Directive
The Low Voltage Directive 72/23/EEC seeks to ensure that electrical equipment within certain limits both provides a high level of protection for European citizens and enjoys a single market in the European Union. Where applicable, Bulgin products comply with the requirements of this directive.
These European Directives introduced environmental responsibilities for electrical and electronics equipment
manufacturers. The RoHS (Restriction of use of certain Hazardous Substances) regulation (Directive 2002/95/EC)
came into force July 2006. The WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) regulation (Directive
2002/96/EC), came into force January 2007.
The RoHS directive effectively bans the use of certain chemicals, these are defined as:
- Hexavalent Chromium
- Polybrominated Biphenyl (PBB) - flame retardant
- Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether (PBDE) - flame retardant (including Deca BDE)
Action has been taken to ensure all standard products meet the requirements of this directive. All packing carries
RoHS compliance information as conformation.
