BASEC is a member of the pan-European HAR scheme for the mutual acceptance of certification of harmonised cables.

Cables within the scope of the scheme (cable types made to harmonised European standards) are certified by the approval body in the territory where the manufacturing facility is located. The certification of these cables is accepted by all the other HAR scheme member approval bodies as if they have been certified by themselves.

BASEC provides HAR scheme certification to manufacturers based in the UK, Ireland and other eligible countries. Cables certified by BASEC under the HAR scheme are marked with the approval legend 'BASEC <HAR>'.

BASEC controls the use of the HAR scheme trademark in the UK and in Ireland.
