You can be confident that we have the quality processes and certification in place to meet the thorough demands set by the industry.
At Brooks Forgings Ltd our comprehensive range of manufacturing processes enable us to develop and produce components that are used in dozens of industries worldwide. Some of these industries demand certifications that will guarantee the components supplied meet and exceed the requirements.
Our ongoing improvement program aims to keep us moving forward to achieve the latest certifications, many of which are detailed below.
If you have any questions regarding our approvals please do get in touch.
LRQA Lloyds Approved
ISO 9001: 2015
Component traceability is ensured by individual cast identification supported by all levels of certification. We offer Certificates of Conformity through to BS EN 10204 2.1, 2.2, 3.1 and independent inspection to BS EN 10204 3.2.
Quality plans, first article, and dimensional inspection reports are available upon request.
CE & UKCA Approved
EN 1090 EXC3 & EN 15048
CE marking demonstrates a products compliance with applicable EU legislation and its legitimacy to be placed on the market within the European Market.
The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales, and Scotland). It covers most goods that previously required the CE marking.
National Highway Sector Scheme 3 (NHSS3)
The National Highway Sector Scheme (NHSS) approval is a bespoke quality management system based on, but not duplicating, the ISO 9001 standard. Split into several schemes it is designed to ensure that work is carried out to the highest standards.
We are now fully approved for the manufacture and distribution of Mechanical Fasteners up to M100 in accordance with National Highway Sector Scheme 3.
RISQS - Railway Industry Supplier Scheme
Brooks Forgings Ltd is committed to achieving the latest industry-recognised approvals. RISQS (Formally Achilles Link-Up) is recognised worldwide, demonstrating to buyers that we strive to meet the strict regulations for the manufacture and supply of components in the Railway Industry Sector.
Full quality documentation
To QC1, QC2 & QC3 on Request
Our ISO 9001 registration demonstrates our competency and experience in all areas of our quality control system. Many projects within the construction industry demand vigorous traceability of all supplied components, we are able to provide detailed quality manuals to grades 1, 2, and 3.

In House Facilities
Of particular benefit to you are our in-house tool room and testing facilities. We can manufacture special inspection jigs, gauges, and fixtures, as well as carry out in-house hardness, tensile, and coating thickness tests.
The FARO Gage is a portable CMM that increases measurement productivity and flexibility and enhances accuracy in any production environment.
End the reliance on expensive and hard-to-use fixed CMMs, improve measurement consistency, generate automatic reports including SPC analysis and GD&T, and reduce inspection times with the FARO Gage.
Marposs Merlin Gage Computer
The Marposs Merlin is specifically designed for measuring applications and statistical analysis for the shop floor environment.
ProPen Marking - Component Traceability
We have both portable and benchtop micro-percussion marking systems.
Commonly used for jobs requiring full traceability and unique component identification.
50 Tonne Destructive/Tensile Testing Machine
Mayes 4 Column Vertical Universal Tensile Testing Machine. 500 KN model. Installed within our manufacturing facility, it enables us to complete tests in-house, saving valuable time in the manufacturing process, and reduce lead times.
Our in-house tool room plays a vital part in assisting our quality control department.
Component inspection jigs can be produced ensuring 100% dimensional checks throughout production.
Liquid Penetrant Inspection
Liquid penetrant inspection (LPI) is a commonly used inspection method to locate surface-breaking defects.
LPI is used to detect casting, forging, and welding surface defects such as hairline cracks and surface porosity.
Coating Thickness Gauge Eban 3000
The coating thickness gauge eban3000 MK2 is the top specification DFT gauge having an extensive range of features offering full batching and statistical capability with date and time being recorded. Measuring range up to 50 millimeters. High accuracy of up to ±1% when referred to reference standards.
Cyclops Portable Thermometer
A general-purpose, high temperature, portable infrared thermometer, designed for accurate measurement of temperatures in the range 550 to 3000°C/ 1022 to 5432°F.
Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence Analyzer (EDXRF)
Handheld energy-dispersive x-ray fluorescence analyzer. It can quickly, non-destructively, determine the elemental composition of metal and precious metal samples.
Brinell and Rockwell Hardness Testers
Hardness is the measure of the resistance of a particular material to deformation when an external force or load is applied to that material.
Unlike physical quantities such as length, time, volume, or electrical current, hardness is a relative value that has no fundamental quantity or absolute standard. Hardness is related to other mechanical characteristics such as tensile strength, yield strength, elastic limit, resistance to wear, ductility, etc.
Hardness has become as critical as fit and finish in determining product quality. Metallic parts must function under increasingly arduous conditions, with loads, pressure, and temperatures constantly increasing, hardness measurement is often one of the easiest and sometimes the best ways of establishing that components will be able to take the strain.
Leading Lab Access
For particular dimensions, specifications, and features (where required by you) we have access to the UK's leading independent inspection laboratories, adding further to our ability to meet today's ever-increasing challenges and demands.
