BRE Global

Ensuring that products and services protect people, property and the planet

BRE Global works to ensure that fire, security, environmental and other products and services provide the quality of performance and protection that they should.

We are an independent, third-party approvals organisation, offering certification of products, services and systems to an international market. Our testing and approvals are carried out by recognised experts in world-class facilities. We also offer cutting-edge research and consultancy services.

Fire and security certification - our Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) assesses and certifies fire and security systems and services against standards, such as BS, EN and LPS, developed in cooperation with manufacturers and insurers. Approved systems and services are listed in the world famous Red Book.

Environmental certification - claiming to be ‘green' is a common marketing tactic that is not easily substantiated. We assess and certify environmental products and services which are then listed in our free database, Green Book Live. BRE Global is responsible for the internationally renowned BREEAM family of schemes for assessing the environmental performance of buildings.

The BIM Level 2 Business Systems Certification scheme assesses a business’ BIM policy and capability as defined within PAS 1192-2:2013 and PAS 91 as well as assessing the ability of the business to meet the requirements of an employer to carry out a BIM capability assessment.  The BIM Level 2 Certificated Practitioner Scheme, aimed at individuals who have completed BRE Academy’s BIM training courses ensures that, once qualified, you meet – and will continue to meet – the appropriate standards, through a combination of regular audits and on-going CPD requirements.

Management systems - we offer third-party approval to quality management (ISO 9001:2008), environmental management (ISO 14001) and health and safety management (BS OHSAS 18001) standards.

Advisory Services - our experts will help you with risk assessments, design solutions and specifications that minimise fire and security risks in buildings, infrastructure and transport systems, and reduce the risk of crime in public places and communities.

Research, testing and investigation - we have world-class test and research facilities, and a fifty-year history of fire investigations and expert witness services.  The BRE Academy also offers a range of online training course for construction professionals.

Training- our training team offers courses in areas such as designing and managing buildings for fire safety, security and fire risk assessment. 

BRE Group operates in accordance with strict guidelines and procedures to ensure that we remain impartial and avoid conflicts of interest. It should be noted that BRE Group does not offer consultancy, advice or guidance in any areas that could conflict with our assurance services.

The descriptions of our many assurance and consultancy services on this website have been kept brief for the sake of clarity and may not always make such considerations clear. If you would like further information on these services please contact BRE Customer Services.
