LPCB – The Loss Prevention Certification Board
The LPCB is a technical approvals issuing body that tests products under the Building Regulations, Construction Products Directive and other European legislation. It is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) against the following standards:
LPCB also offers:
EN45011 product certification
EN45012 management systems certification
CE marking certification
Approvals for ‘European Technical Approvals’
Testing as a ‘Notified Body’
The LPCB tests and approves products against LPS 1175 ‘Requirements and Testing Procedures for the LPCB Approval and Listing of Burglary Resistant Building Components, Strongpoints and Security Enclosures’. This evaluates the resistance to burglary offered by various physical security products.
Note: Surelock McGill fully supports security testing by its customers. Any successful test evidence carried out by Surelock McGill will be made available for the benefit of its customers for possible appending to any of their existing LPS 1175 accreditation.
Tests on security products are carried out under laboratory conditions using attack times and tools defined by the security rating that the product is suitable for (see table below). Thus risk and result are correlated to the tools used and the time that it takes for security to be breached using those tools.
