“This code of practice gives recommendations on basic workmanship and covers those tasks which are frequently carried out in relation to slating and tiling of roofs and claddings of buildings. The recommendations apply to the laying and fixing of clay and concrete tiles, natural and fibre reinforced cement slates and their associated fittings and accessories. For design aspects of slating and tiling, reference should be made to BS 5534-1 and BS 5534-2. NOTE 1 This code of practice has been written on the basis that its use will be supported by documentation on the fixings for roofing underlays, edges, slates and tiles. NOTE 2 This code of practice includes supplementary elements in the form of notes to assist in its use and understanding.”

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.
