Regulation and compliance

Satisfying the fire safety requirements of building codes and regulations is crucial for protecting life, property, assets and the environment

Codes and regulations

Building legislation exists to ensure buildings are constructed in way that protect people’s safety, health and welfare. Varying depending on region or jurisdiction, these can stipulate requirements for how a building should be protected from the spread of fire, how it manages internal and external sound, and the quality of both materials and installation. Our global team of technical experts can help you understand the requirements applicable to your project.

Compliance with both building regulations and construction product regulations is fundamental to successful projects. To help project teams to meet local requirements we go beyond, testing our products to the most rigorous international standards. Always aiming to surpass minimum requirements and getting tests third-party certified wherever possible for clear assurances that our products will perform as expected.

Discover our approach to testing


Innovation can’t happen in isolation. We believe the highest levels of building safety can only be achieved if the industry works together. In addition to conducting our own testing, we have long been working with other manufacturers, contractors and testing houses all over the world to find new and verified ways to approach passive fire protection. This includes participating in large-scale system tests and sharing our knowledge and experience with industry and national working groups.

We collaborated with BSI (British Standards Institution) to help develop the BSi Identify scheme.
