Type of Standards


This standard establishes principles for the structural use of concrete under the following stipulations: a) method of design: limit states classified as ultimate limit state and serviceability limit states;
b) material: ordinary concrete of normal and low density, used in reinforced, prestressed and precast structures or elements and in plain concrete walls;
c) types of structures: buildings and structures in which all load-bearing elements (e.g. slabs, columns, walls, etc.) are of concrete.
NOTE The rules for stability (see clause 3) also apply to structures in which concrete elements such as floor slabs and walls are used in conjunction with load-bearing elements made of other materials.
1.2 This standard does not cover the structural use of concrete for structures that are the subject of specialist literature (shells, folded plates, bridges, tunnels, retaining walls, water-retaining structures, chimneys, and other specialized elements).

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.
