The Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances (AMDEA) has been recognised by the British Standards Institution (BSI) for leading the way in establishing key production standards in the UK and wider world. AMDEA won the BSI Industry Leadership Award on Thursday November 17 at a ceremony in London, becoming the very first recipient of this new honour.

As well as its strong representation on 53 BSI committees, the trade association is a front-runner in international standardisation, at IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and CENELEC (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization). AMDEA ensures that the UK plays a pivotal role in improving the international standards of domestic appliances by providing delegates who assiduously pursue best practice, the association notes. Its technical team includes Stuart MacConnacher, 2015’s winner of BSI’s International Standards Maker Award.

The BSI citation notes  that on many occasions, AMDEA  has led its members in ad-hoc working groups with consumer representatives, BEIS, the London Fire Brigade and other stakeholders to scrutinise issues and identify solutions through amendments to manufacturing  standards.

AMDEA chairman Simon Grantham commented: “AMDEA is vigorously committed to improving standards in domestic appliances by tirelessly engaging its technical expertise, including that of its members, in the development of international standards. This BSI award is testimony to the UK domestic appliance industry’s commitment to keep our customers safe, using appliances that offer the highest possible levels of performance and environmental protection.”
