Important notice regarding amended Building Regulation

As a valued customer we would like to inform you our Ecobead Platinum BBA Certificate 04/4167 Product Sheet 1 relating to external walls of a building is being reviewed by the BBA in line with the latest amended Building Regulation 7(2) for England and the amended Approved Document B Volume 2:

Products that do not achieve a fire classification of at least A2-s1, d0 to BS EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009 will no longer be eligible for use in high-rise buildings which contain one or more dwellings; an institution or a room for residential purposes (excluding any room in a hostel, hotel or boarding house), student accommodation, care homes, sheltered housing, hospitals and dormitories in boarding schools, with a storey at least 18m above ground level in England as of 21st December 2018.

This amendment does not apply where a building notice or initial notice has been given to, or full plans deposited with, a local authority before 21st December 2018 but only if the building work has already started or starts within two months of that date.

Notification of these impending changes will be dealt with via announcements on the BBA website until such time as our certificate has been assessed and where applicable, updated.

If affected our certificate 04/4167 Product Sheet 1 will be updated as soon as possible by the BBA but for now is identified via an announcement alongside the entry on the BBA website.

Users of the Certificate should read these announcements in conjunction with this statement and the contents of Regulation 7(2) and the associated amendments to Approved Document B Volume 2 which take precedence over the existing wording of the Certificate.
