BSI has launched a new website for its Kitemark to allow consumers to check the credentials of products and services which carry the standard.
The free site www.kitemark.com also contains a directory so that people can find out and who manufactures or provides Kitemark-registered goods and services.
Broadcaster Quentin Willson, who works with BSI Product Services to promote the Kitemark, said: "To have a Kitemark is no mean achievement and consumers know that.
“While it is a well-known and trusted symbol around the home, it now appears on a wider range of products and services - from vehicle glass and fire extinguishers to car servicing or car body repair shops.
"Customers now they have access to authoritative, up-to-date information about what's safe, what's been tested, and what is reliable. It's a hugely beneficial resource that could help make British consumers safer."
