National Caravan Council
Background Information


The trade association for the caravan industry in the UK

October 2008

The National Caravan Council ( NCC ) is the UK caravan industry's trade body and looks after touring caravans, motorhomes, caravan holiday homes and park (mobile) homes.   It is a not-for-profit organisation with approaching 500 member companies representing 800 outlets in manufacturing, retailing, park operations and the supply of caravan-related products and services.

All NCC member companies are committed to continually raise standards of technical and commercial excellence.   Through its Certification Schemes, the NCC ensures consumers' peace of mind by setting and monitoring stringent health and safety standards for its four product areas.

What the NCC does for the consumer

The NCC operates the Certification ('Badge of Approval') scheme, which focuses on the safety of the product and ensures that touring caravans, motorhomes and caravan holiday homes comply with all relevant regulations.   The NCC has been inspecting caravans since 1964, and inspection often requires over 600 different checks by a team of specialists.   The checks cover a wide variety of things but particularly gas and electrical installations.

In addition, the NCC publishes as suite of Lifestyle guides, to introduce new audiences to the joys of caravanning.
