Standards and Codes of Practice

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

The requirements of LPCB schemes are given in LPCB Scheme Documents. These documents are drafted by BRE Global technical experts in conjunction with appropriate external experts.  They are then peer reviewed by representatives from trade bodies, regulators, insurers, specifiers, manufacturers and other suppliers.  

Finally these documents are approved for use by the BRE Global Governing Body; the body that oversees all of the certification activities of BRE Global/LPCB.   

These standards are always open to revision and suggestions for improvement are always welcomed.

Our Loss Prevention Standards can be downloaded free of charge. We also approve to International and British Standards but unfortunately due to copyright we are unable to provide a link for you.

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 approvals of products and services that can help to reduce their impact on the environment. These can be accessed free of charge at
