Collation of responses, BSD feedback and LABSS position - use of BR128 Guidelines for the construction of fire‐resisting structural elements

Members
Date of publication:

At the LABSS/BSD technical liaison meeting on the 14 April 2021 the BSD confirmed the intention to remove reference to BR128 from the handbooks at the earliest opportunity.
Colin Hird noted that the guidance within the document could still be valid on the basis that material properties remain consistent with those in place at the time of publication.

LABSS position - The BSD feedback is noted. Based on this feedback verifiers should refer to BR128 with caution with particular regard to the assumptions related to material properties, as noted within page 14 of BR128.
