1.1 This specification covers requirements for the performance of burglar-resistant and vandal-resistant glazing materials intended for use in areas of buildings that may be subject to manual attack. 1.2 This specification does not cover glazing materials that have been treated or are intended to be treated at any place other than the works of a manufacturer, nor does it cover requirements for properties of glazing materials after aging, or the performance of burglar-resistant and vandal-resistant glazing materials under fire conditions. NOTE 1 Guidance on the verification of the quality of burglar-resistant and vandal-resistant glazing materials produced to this specification is given in Annex A. NOTE 2 Provision (when relevant) of the 10 specimen sheets of security glazing material to be used for the impact test requires special agreement between the supplier and the purchaser.

The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) understands the importance of impartiality and confidentiality in carrying out its management system certification activities. BOBS management is committed to gaining and maintaining the reputation, credibility and ultimately, confidence of its stakeholders in rendering its certification services. Additionally, BOBS strives to continuously manage foreseen potential conflicts of duty and interest and ensures objectivity of its activities under the management system certification. To achieve the above, BOBS shall identify, analyse, record and manage potential conflict of duty and interest to ensure that certification services are not provided within relationships that have been identified to pose an unacceptable threat to impartiality. An Impartiality Committee shall periodically review activities of the certification function to verify commitment to credibility and fairness. The Committee shall further assist in the development of policies relating to impartiality of providing certification activities. BOBS is committed to maintaining in strict confidence all information accessed while rendering the certification services and shall ensure that such information is not divulged to third parties without the Client’s written consent unless if required by law.
