BUCP is a non profit association, which was created in 1998.

BUCP's main statutory objective is to come up for the common interests of the Belgian certification bodies, inspection bodies and testing laboratories for construction products in the scope of the Belgian voluntary quality marks and the regulatory European CE marking.

According to the statutes, the full members of BUCP belong to the following interest groups:
Bodies belonging to the above-mentioned groups are only admitted as full members if they work within the scope of Belgian voluntary quality marks, in particular the BENOR mark or the Technical Approval (ATG) or if they were notified by the Belgian authorities to the European Commission in the framework of the CE-marking.

Nonetheless, BUCP may admit as associate members, bodies that cannot be accepted as full members because of the statutes.
