Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme (BOPAS) Accreditation
If you are involved in the Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) sector as a designer, project manager, manufacturer, or constructor, it is essential to obtain accreditation to the Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme (BOPAS).
This accreditation provides lenders with assurances that your organisation is forward-thinking and has the necessary skills, knowledge, and expertise to deliver exceptional quality construction systems while adhering to best practices throughout the project lifecycle process.

Our service offers expert guidance and resources every step of the way – We are here to simplify the process, ensuring your success.
How it works: Our Services Explained
The gap analysis involves taking a closer look at your existing management system and comparing it with the requirements of the BOPAS Guidance Document and the findings from the gap analysis undertaken by LRQA.
This enables us to develop a comprehensive plan to address major and minor non-conformities that could potentially impede accreditation.
The gap analysis provides an excellent opportunity for your team to become familiar with the audit process and understand what the full implementation audit will entail. The gap analysis will be conducted at your head office.
We understand that every organisation is unique and may require different levels of support depending on what gaps have been identified and the level of maturity of your existing quality management system. We will work closely with you to close out the non-conformities outlined within the gap analysis report.
This may include the development and integration of new processes, policies, documents, and resources within the following focus areas:
- Organisational structure
- Human resources
- Supply chain
- Risk management
- Document control
- Design and process control
- Offsite manufacturing
- Performance and monitoring
- Project completion and handover
- Continual improvement
Your organisation must have an internal audit programme established. The purpose of internal audits is two-fold. Firstly, to check that your management system conforms to the requirements specified by you as necessary for your operations; secondly, to ensure conformity to stakeholder requirements.
We will develop a robust risk-based internal audit programme focusing on key areas such as:
- Health and Safety
In addition, we can provide support in completing internal audits on your behalf.
The Full Implementation Audit is the last step to obtain accreditation. Its purpose is to evaluate your organisational structure, processes, procedures, and competencies that combine to deliver the scope of work for which accreditation is sought.
We understand the importance of a successful outcome and will work closely with you to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to achieve it. We will provide full support throughout the audit to ensure a successful outcome.
After your organisation has achieved accreditation, you will be subject to an LRQA surveillance audit programme at a minimum annually. We can provide additional support throughout the year and during surveillance audits to ensure your organisation maintains accreditation and continually improves.
Our BOPAS support plan is designed for organisations that may not have the necessary time or resources to keep their management system up-to-date and consistently adding value.
