LABC Assured (previously Registered Details) is a one-off building regulations and standards assessment process for England, Wales and Scotland.
As the only scheme of its kind supported by all local authorities, LABC Assured can:
- Streamline the building regulations application process.
- Increase industry confidence in the building regulation performance and suitability of each registration.
- Make the building control process faster, easier and cheaper by simplifying the submission route.
- Provide a ready made library of checked systems and products for specifiers.
- Help ensure simpler structural warranty approval through our association with our colleagues at LABC Warranty.
N.B. To see if a specific product is covered by LABC Warranty, please consult the product’s LABC certificate which can be found by using the 'Search for an LABC Assured registration' button below.
Following the Government’s announcement on 19th January 2021 that a new regulator was to be established in respect of construction materials within the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS), together with the details emerging from phase 2, module 2 of the Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry, the LABC Board of Directors instigated a comprehensive review of the LABC Assured scheme. The review was conducted in accordance with the general criteria within ISO 10965:2012. The review has now been completed and has reported back to the LABC Board, who have resolved that the LABC Assured scheme should now be closed.
Accordingly, no new applications will now be considered for registration and commencing from the 1st December 2021 all expired registrations will be removed from the LABC register/website. All current registrations will remain on the LABC register/website until their date of expiry whereupon they will be removed.

As part of the review (above) of the LABC Assured process a decision was taken to remove a number of registrations ahead of their expiry date.
Guidance on ways of establishing the fitness of materials can be found in the Approved Document that supports regulation7: Materials and Workmanship 2013 edition incorporating 2018 amendments – for use in England or the parallel Approved Document for building work in Wales.
Paragraph 1.2 of the above describes how you can assess the suitability of a material for use for a specific purpose in a number of ways, these are described in paragraphs 1.3 to 1.21 of both approved documents.
N.B. Following the recent changes to Building Regulation 7 (2), some registrations for products have been temporarily removed from the LABC website to allow changes to be made to the scope of registration. Products and systems that do not have sufficient supporting evidence proving they achieve a European Classification of A2-s1,d0 will have a clarification added to state that they will no longer be suitable for use on relevant buildings with a storey at least 18m above ground level and which contains one or more dwellings; an institution; or a room for residential purposes (excluding any room in a hostel, hotel or a boarding house).
