Type of Standards


This Botswana Standard specifies requirements for fibrous insulation (flexible or rigid) materials that may be supplied as mats or batts and used for thermal insulation of buildings. Typical examples of this product are mineral fibre (such as rock wool, glass wool), synthetic fibre (such as polyester fibre) and natural fibres (such as wool). Materials of this type usually exhibit substantial variation in density, thickness, resiliency and thickness regain, after compressed packaging and are therefore not considered as pre-formed shapes. The fibrous mats or batts can be supplied with or without membrane covering(s). The membrane covering(s) can be reflective.
NOTE Fibrous mats or batts supplied with one or more membrane should be tested as a unit.

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.

When things don't work as they should, it often means that standards are absent.
