Other bodies, such as BRE Certification (LPS), National Building Specifications (NBS), NHBC and Secured by Design (SBD) also issue specifications that may be called for in tender documents. CAB works with such organisations to ensure that references to and requirements for aluminium products are fair, accurate and reflect current industry capabilities and practice. Further information is included in the above list.
Building Regulations are drafted and issued by the relevant government departments for the respective regions within the UK. Specific Acts of Parliament must also be complied with, but they will normally lead to Approved Documents being introduced. Further information is also included in the above list.
The Standards Watch Service is available to CAB members to simplify the task of keeping their standards library up to date.
