As a responsible timber door manufacturer, Premdor is a committed member of some of the most nationally recognised timber, construction and environmental associations, complying with each organisation's code of conduct and ensuring that Premdor conforms to current industry regulation and legislation.
The British Woodworking Federation is the trade association for the woodworking and door and window manufacturing industry in the UK. It has over 500 members drawn from manufacturers, distributors and installers of timber doors, timber windows and all forms of architectural joinery and suppliers to the industry.
All members are signatories to BWF's Code of Conduct – a rigorous set of standards of workmanship, company stewardship and environmental disciplines. The Code of Conduct is the end user's assurance of quality and service and ensures that a quality timber door or window has entered the supply chain.
The Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) are a long established and well respected trade association, representing all key manufacturers and installers of industrial, commercial, pedestrian and garage doors and powered gates, as well as manufacturers of door and window locks, building hardware and architectural ironmongery.
The organisation actively helps its members comply with the latest CE marking legislation and other health and safety and compliance legislation. DHF are also committed to helping its members reduce the environmental impact caused by the design, manufacture, maintenance and use of their products, working with its members on a number of environmental initiatives.
The BWF-CERTIFIRE Fire Door & Doorset Scheme was established by a group of prime Fire Door manufacturers aiming to increase the standard of fire doors across the supply chain.
The scheme is operated and managed by the British Woodworking Federation (BWF) and was established as a partnership with Warrington Certifire Ltd.
Members commit themselves to a rigorous certification programme, requiring a considerable investment in both time and money. This commitment to quality will ensure that these lifesaving doors achieve their aim of saving lives and protecting property.
Established in 1989, Secured by Design (SBD) is owned by the Association of Chief Police Officers and is the corporate title for a group of national police projects, focusing on the design and security of dwellings and commercial properties.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world's forests.
The FSC® runs a global forest certification system with two key components: Forest Management and Chain of Custody certification. This system allows consumers to identify, purchase and use timber and forest products produced from legal and well-managed forests.
FSC® certified doors and windows can help reduce carbon emissions and can form part of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
FSC® Certification applies to many Premdor timber doors and is represented through the use of the FSC® logo alongside certified doors.
The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international, non-profit, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting sustainable forestry management through independent third-party certification, ensuring that timber forest products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards.
PEFC Certification applies to many Premdor timber doors and is represented through the use of the PEFC logo alongside certified doors.
