Registered Stockist scheme

Become a Registered Stockist of BASEC approved products.

Under the new Registered Stockist scheme if you are stocking and selling, or re-selling cables you can now apply to be certified to supply BASEC approved cable products. If you are the buyer then looking for the mark of a Registered Stockist will help you to select approved suppliers. BASEC product certification will continue to only be valid on the specific approved product.

Historically BASEC approval could only be achieved by cable manufacturers. We have extended certification to include stockists to help provide a safety net, to ensure that the cable product has maintained the levels of quality it held at the manufacturing source. Whether you’re a single entity or you have a network of regional and local branches – you can now apply for Registered Stockist status.


The suppliers management systems and processes are rigorously inspected and audited as part of the approved Registered Stockist scheme; in addition to this cable samples from the stockist, distributor or wholesaler facility are taken for independent BASEC testing. Once both parts are successfully passed the supplier gains Registered Stockist status. The scheme focuses on reviewing procurement and selling practices to ensure that the quality, of the product, at source has been maintained and verified from the manufacture, right through the supply chain to the end user.

ISO 9001 certification of the supplier Head Office is required to be eligible to apply, however, if your cable supply operation needs this too, no need to worry as we can certify this standard for you as a pre-requisite.
