Design basis threat

The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB part of BRE Global) sets the standards needed to ensure that fire and security products and services perform effectively. LPCB’s Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are applied in fire and security sectors around the world.

The Loss Prevention Standard (LSP 2082 : Issue 1.0), published by BRE Global in 2017, states that: ‘Design Basis Threat’ is: ‘Derived from a threat assessment, the description of the attributes and characteristics of a credible threat against which a facility and its assets are to be protected.'
