NAMM Accredited Category C
Namms statement on their website/ despite be requested in writing to remove this misleading claim and also informing trading standards of the false statement stone Safe claim that their product is Namm accredited category c on there website.
Being accused of making a false statement obviously has caused us a great embarrassment being corporate members of the iccm fbca and a member of trading Standards (buy with confidence).
In April 2020 a letter was received by trading Standards informing that stone Safe stability system limited were in breach re the consumer protection from unfair trading regulations 2008 namm claimed that they have no record of stone Safe stability system limited being a member since 2015. After consulting legal advice from FSB federation of small businesses we contacted trading Standards in order to put the record straight. We have never been a member of Namm although we were asked to join on several occasions how ever we are members of Bramm, we wrote to Namm back in 2005 having designed and developed a memorial stability system stone Safe. After carrying out a demonstration with the Chichester district council I was informed by the health and safety officer that it required to be tested. The stone Safe system was originally tested by Southampton university of structural engineering mainly because of the indemnity insurance in order to carry out such a test. The system achieved 250kg plus (test certificate received) and the fee for carrying out the test was £150.
We wrote to Namm shortly after and asked if they would accept the university’s accreditation and I was informed by Namm technical that the test would have to be carried out by them as they are the trade association for the memorial industry. An agreement was made at a cost of £800 in order to carry out a test at their test site in Northampton.
This was carried out on the 6th of September 2005, JPP consulting engineers confirmed this. We also have a document dated 10th of Mach 2006 confirming accreditation through to category c memorials up to 5 feet (1500cm ) in height.
Informing trading Standards in providing all the evidence no further action was taken we now seek to ask Namm to remove these false claims from their website before seeking further action.
