Quality for Buildings
With the aim of simplifying certification within the field of construction, and of enhancing the clarity of benchmarks for quality, performance and reliability offered by products, services and industry operators, in late 2015 the CSTB (Scientific and Technical Centre for Building) launched QB - the Quality for Buildings certification mark.
QB is of benefit to industry professionals and supports them by offering recognition of the quality of their certified products, services or skills.
QB attests to the compliance of products with the requirements set out in the certification reference documents.
