“This specification covers the requirements for metal fire resisting door units that are capable of passing a test in which they are gradually heated (over a period of 60 min) to a temperature of 945 °C and are then maintained at that temperature for 30 min. NOTE1 Because it is impractical to test samples taken from each consignment of fire resisting door units for compliance with some of the requirements of this specification, no specific sampling procedure has been included. The tests specified in clause 6 shall be carried out, under the supervision of an independent authority, on at least one fire resisting door unit from each group (as defined in clause 3). Some of the requirements and their allied tests are of such a nature that compliance can be proved only by means of a suitable agreement between supplier and purchaser. This agreement would have to include: a)the submission to the purchaser of proof of compliance with the specification of the prototype, i.e. the group testsample (see 5.2); and
b)the granting to the purchaser of access to records of raw materials used and of access to the factory to ensure thathis consignment of fire resisting door units has been made in the same manner as the prototype and from materialsat least equal in quality to those used in the manufacture of the prototype. NOTE2 Requirements that must be specified by the purchaser and a requirement that must be agreed upon between purchaser and supplier are listed in Annex A.”

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.
