Our Standards

Our Standards are produced to help ensure that a product or service meets the needs of users or where a new unproven technology is introduced.

Loss Prevention Standards 

The Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are for information only and should not be used for any other purpose. Their use is subject to interpretation by our experts, and we take no responsibility for their use by others.

Building Product Standards

We also have a number of Building Product Standards (BPSs) which have been developed for products and systems where there were no directly applicable recognised standard.

Environmental Standards

BRE Global also offers certification of products and services that can help to reduce their impact on the environment. These can be accessed free of charge at http://www.greenbooklive.com/

NOTE

Any distribution or use of any of the material in our standards may only be done with the written permission of BRE Global Ltd. Those wishing to use or reproduce this standard for any purpose should apply to enquiries@breglobal.com for training, assessment and a licence. A fee will normally be payable.
