IFSEC Tech Talks – LPCB Overview

LPCB and LPS-1175 Overview

IFSEC-FIREX-TechTalks-20In this Tech Talk, Richard Flint, Technical and Commercial Lead for Physical Security at BRE, gives an overview of the global recognised third-party certification body, LPCB, and the process companies go through to gain accreditation for LPS-1175.

The standard focuses on the physical security of a range of intruder resistant protection products developed by manufacturers and vendors in the physical security sector. Covering everything from security fences at the outer perimeter, through to doorsets, access covers and turnstiles, the systems are subjected to rigorous testing processes.

After the overview, Richard answers audience questions in a live Q&A.

Within the live Q&A, discussion points included:

  • What is the biggest challenge you have faced in respect to the standard and its adoption?
  • You mentioned the standard is often updated to reflect changes in threat levels. Looking forward, what major changes to the standard or how/where it is used do you expect to see in the next five years?
  • LPS1175 has obviously had quite an impact on how forced entry protection is specified and benchmarked. Why do you think it’s had such a worldwide appeal?
  • What golden nuggets of advice can you share with those embarking on the certification process for the first time based on your many years of experience?
  • I got the sense LPS1175 is only suited to products sold off-the-shelf. Is that the case or could LPS1175 be applied to bespoke products specified for one off landmark projects?
  • What are the major changes Issue 8 introduced for LPS 1175?
  • What are the differences between LPCB certification and EN/BS standards?
  • I’ve seen you run example tests at IFSEC – what does this involve exactly?
