SITMA is affiliated to the Building Compliance Testers Association (BCTA).

In its three years of operation, SITMA has verified over 60,000 tests in 18,000 premises and construction sites, and provided invaluable support to testing businesses throughout the Covid 19 pandemic – enabling a continuation of service in what would otherwise have been very difficult conditions.
