Type of Standards


This Botswana Standard specifies the requirements for boards for load-bearing boards for use in humid conditions. Particleboards complying with this standard may also be referred to as P2-boards. This standard does not give requirements for oriental strand boards (OSB) and it does not apply to extruded particleboards. The values listed in this draft standard relate to product properties, but they are not characteristic values to be used in design calculations. NOTE 1 These boards are intended for use in design and construction of load-bearing or stiffening building elements. E.g. walls, flooring and I-beams. NOTE 2 Humid conditions are characterized by moisture contents in the material corresponding to a temperature of 20 oC and the relative humidity of the surrounding air only exceeding 85

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.
