The two commendations followed a rigorous ten-week submission, inspection and assessment period managed by Lanes’ Northern Operations Manager, Darren Hamilton. He explained: “WRc Approved is a voluntary 'fitness for purpose' certification scheme run by independent organisation WRc plc (Water Research centre). It is becoming more and more widely recognised — and demanded by clients. We work for London Underground, and it was the first of our customers to ask for WRc accreditation".
Clients appreciate the WRc scheme because they do not have to worry about a supplier’s claims regarding the product/service performance. WRc Approved™ means it has already been validated.
Darren said: “Quite simply, WRc does the leg work for them. Not only do the WRc experts check that all manufacturers’ instructions are followed to the letter, they test the efficacy of the products themselves and monitor the procedures and processes involved in using them.
Once you have a WRc seal of approval, customers know that they are going to get quality products and a quality service. It’s a pre-work guarantee.”
