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 voluntary conformity marks, the regulatory European CE marking and the Belgian accreditation of these bodies.

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 the voluntary conformity marks BENOR and ATG or if they were notified by the Belgian authorities to the European Union Commission for the attestation of CE-marking.

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

The statutes of BUCP were published on the Annexes of the Belgian Official Journal of 1999.04.01 and 2001.11.01 (amendments) under identification number 4536/99. The statutes of BUCP were published on the Annex of the Belgian Official Journal of 1999.04.01 under identification number 4536/99.
