About the Scheme

WRc Approved is an international 'fitness for purpose' certification scheme run by WRc plc to help suppliers demonstrate the performance of their products and services. Buyers can have confidence in WRc Approved reducing risks in procurement. Quality, performance and installation are all covered in the assessment of the product or service. 

Over 390 Approvals have been issued since the scheme started. Approved products include pipes, lining and repair systems, flow control systems, inspection systems, fittings, manholes and access chambers and software. Approved services include soil surveys, CCTV type inspection and drain repair contractors; these are all focused on demonstrating good workmanship.

Any product or service can be Approved. For a ‘novel’ product where no standards exist, we utilise our knowledge and expertise to ensure the Approval is robust and appropriate for the industry.
