The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) is a globally recognised third-party certification body delivering certainty for over 150 years.

Part of BRE, the LPCB has worked with industry and insurers since 1868 to set the standards needed to make sure that fire and security products and services perform effectively.

The LPCB’s Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are widely recognised and applied in fire and security sectors around the world.

The LPCB also offers third-party certification to confirm that products and services have met, and will continue to meet, these standards. Full details of the Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are available on RedBook Live.
