WPL gain LABC registration for key products

Published:  21 March, 2011

PORTSMOUTH: WPL is making it easier for customers to install their products with minimal time and fuss by gaining LABC registration.

WPL was assessed by Portsmouth City Council and received LABC registration for its Diamond domestic sewage treatment plant, RainRetain domestic and developers’ rainwater harvesting systems and percolation tunnels in February 2011.

While registration is not in any way a certification, this system allows architects, contractors, developers and specifiers to be reassured that the system they are purchasing or specifying has been fully checked by the LABC. Perhaps the most important part of this is that the product is compliant with all current building control regulations, provided that they are installed correctly and used as registered by the manufacturer.

LABC registration takes the strain out of building control approval processes as once a product has been approved by the LABC, those details are then shared across the entire LABC network and are immediately recognised by all LABC surveyors in England and Wales.
