Type of Standards


This standard covers the design and installation of glazing and glazing materials used in buildings and is for applications described in SANS 10400-N, and for use by a competent person (glazing).
NOTE 1 Compliance with this standard does not necessarily grant exemption from the need for compliance with the relevant national legislation.
NOTE 2 The design methods described in this standard may represent only one of many methods of determining glass thickness and strength requirements for a given situation. A competent person (glazing) may use any method of calculation they deem fit for purpose provided such method represents good engineering design practice, acceptable safety factors and deflections, and can be backed up by reference to reference material or test data.

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.
