Loss Prevention Standard
The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) has been working with industry and insurers 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.
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 avoids wasting time and money searching for and purchasing inappropriate equipment and services.
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.
All fire and security products, services and companies certificated by LPCB to LPS and other industry standards are listed in the ‘RedBook’. These listings can be downloaded free of charge from http://www.RedBookLive.com.
