The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) has been working with industry and government for more than 100 years to set the standards needed to ensure that fire and security products and services perform effectively. LPCB is part of BRE Global.
LPCB’s Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are now widely recognised and applied in fire and security sectors around the world. LPCB offers third-party certification confirming that products and services have met and will continue to meet these standards. Full details of the Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are available online.
All fire and security products, services and companies certificated by LPCB to LPS and other industry standards are listed in the ‘Red Book’. These listings can be downloaded free of charge from RedBookLive.com and via Apple, Android and Windows Apps for smartphones and tablets.
Benefits for specifiers and manufacturers
Selecting LPCB certificated products and services reduces fire safety and security risks and demonstrates due diligence (the use of certificated products is encouraged by insurers). It also means you avoid wasting time and money searching for and purchasing inappropriate equipment and services.
Because LPCB approved certificated are specified worldwide and recognised for their high performance, manufacturers who gain LPCB product certification can benefit from increased sales and value pricing. In addition, third-party approval demonstrates due diligence and reduces liability for manufacturers and their insurers and customers.
