Aimed only at the new build market, Approved Document Part Q Building Regulations takes effect on 1 October 2015.  The document sets out standards for doors and windows to resist physical attack by a casual or opportunist burglar by being both sufficiently robust and fitted with appropriate hardware.

For nearly 50 years the BBA have been assessing Construction Products against national Building Regulations and assessing products against the new Approved Document Part Q is no different.  The BBA is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory No. 0357 for PAS24 testing windows and doors, so whether you have existing test data to PAS24:2012, or require testing to PAS24:2012,  the BBA can guide you through the requirements of compliance to Part Q.
