A Simple Guide to Loss Prevention Standards

Introduction

Design and Management Guidance

This guide introduces current Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) and their
associated approval schemes. These technical standards have been
developed to help provide insurers, clients, designers, specifiers, risk managers
and developers with reliable products and services that meet and continue
to meet their requirements. This guide should be used in conjunction with the
LPCB List of Approved Fire and Security Products and Services
(the Red Book).

The desired performance benefits from using products and services


approved to Loss Prevention Standards will only be obtained if they
are used in accordance with best practice design and management
guidance. This includes various codes of practice such as the LPC Rules
for Automatic Sprinkler Installations (the LPC Sprinkler Rules) available
from www.brebookshop.com.

An up-to-date listing is available on our web site (www.redbooklive.com)


and is also provided free as a handy book or on CD ROM (please contact
enquiries@brecertification.co.uk or telephone +44 (0)1923 664100 for
copies). Copies of the LPS standards are also freely available from our web
site (www.redbooklive.com).

Which Loss Prevention Standards do I need


to protect my risk?

This Guide lists and describes the standards in numerical order (Table A) but
for ease of reference standards relevant to particular component/areas are
also listed (Table B).

Table B lists components and systems together with relevant


standards.

Why Loss Prevention Standards are Produced


Loss Prevention Standards are produced to help ensure that a product or
service meets the needs of users or where a new unproven technology is
introduced. Usually a team of experts is formed to research and draft a
standard which is then reviewed, assessed and endorsed by stakeholders
representing the major interest groups. These standards are always open
to revision and suggestions for improvement are always welcomed. Loss
Prevention Standards are costly for us to produce and maintain and do not
contain all the information needed for other bodies to use for testing and
certification purposes. We are however keen to train, audit and licence other
organisations who have the requisite capabilities to test and certify against
Loss Prevention Standards.

Table A lists all current Loss Prevention Standards, their scope and
common applications.

Current Issues of LPSs


To ensure quality, to enable continuous improvement of the
standard and assessment process and to avoid misuse of our
standards, we list all approved products, services and licensees on
Redbooklive.com. Unless the product, service or company is listed
on Redbooklive.com any claims of certification to a Loss Prevention
Standard are false and it is unlikely that specifiers will get the
performance they expect.
We are constantly reviewing and updating the series of Loss
Prevention Standards so please check that you have the most up
to date issue by checking our website (www.RedBookLive.com). As
stated earlier, the LPSs are constantly under review and you should
check www.RedBookLive.com for the most up to date issues.
