Part of BRE, the LPCB has worked with industry and insurers since 1868 to set the standards needed to make sure that fire and security products and services perform effectively.
The LPCB’s Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are widely recognised and applied in fire and security sectors around the world.
The LPCB also offers third-party certification to confirm that products and services have met, and will continue to meet, these standards. Full details of the Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are available on RedBook Live.

How we test your security products
We take third-party certification of fire and security equipment seriously. We rigorously test and evaluate products, supporting documentation and their auditing process, without cutting corners or making any assumptions. BRE’s forced entry testing of physical security equipment is world-famous. Watch it here and don’t forget to register for the LPCB newsletter to see the fire testing video coming out soon.
Fire safety training
We offer a range of training courses, many of which are recognised by industry bodies and provide Continuing Professional Development credits. Courses range from fire safety awareness to fire risk assessor to practical fire door inspection and an introduction to cladding and fire.

LPCB product certification process
What is product certification?
Certification (or approval) is independent third-party confirmation that a product or system meets and continues to meet the appropriate standard. BRE offers independent third-party certification to existing British, European, International and its own Loss Prevention Standards (LPSs) or Schedules of Requirements.
