LPS 1014 and 1048 Certification

L.B. Foster TEW Plus is celebrating a double success, after receiving full approval certification for both Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) 1014 and 1048 from the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB), part of BRE Global.

Having achieved full approval certification for LPS 1014: Requirements for certificated fire detection and alarm systems firms, and LPS 1048: Requirements for the approval of sprinkler system contractors in the UK and Ireland, L.B. Foster TEW Plus is now listed in the BRE’s ‘RedBook Live’ - the industry ‘go to’ online listing for all fire and security products, services and companies certificated by LPCB to LPS and other industry standards.

In addition to full approval certification to LPS 1014 and LPS 1048, the company has successfully obtained ISO 9001 (via ACM) Scope Extension - a key requirement for entry in the Loss Prevention Standards scheme.

“This is a major achievement for our Contract Services team. The LPS 1014 and 1048 Certificates of Conformity add yet more highly regarded certifications to our long list of professional industry accreditations.”
