Latest WRc Approved Certifications -

Providing confidence in product and service performance and suitability

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.


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.


Over the past 20 years WRc has issued in excess of 400 approvals. Below are the most recent products to acheive WRc Approved Certification in 2018.


CIPP Linings Approvals

Picote Solutions Ltd

Picote Brush Coat System

Approval code - PT/431/0218


"It was great working with WRc as the Approval Team were able to draw upon a wealth of experience of pipe rehabilitation methods and standards. Working with Picote Solutions they were then able to develop a suitable assessment schedule for the Picote Brush Coating (TM) System.

As part of the approval process WRc were able to provide guidance on test requirements and standards which would define the design parameters and longevity of the Picote Brush Coating System.

The major benefit to our existing and potential clients is the independent third party certification that the WRc Approval provides which is recognised in numerous countries around the world, as is the Picote brand."

Training Approval

Pipe Doctor No Dig Repair System Training Course

Approval code - PT/424/0318


”Although the approval process was rigorous, we were in touch with WRc throughout to provide all the information they needed and the approval process ran very smoothly. This thorough process ensures that the WRc Approval has meaning – contractors can be sure that the course provides real benefit to them, and their customers, the Water Companies, can be confident that they understand best practice. Some forward-thinking Water Companies undoubtedly value this assurance. S1E would like to continue to work closely with WRc to push this approach out widely across all UK Water Companies,”
