Kingspan Update 2022

 

It has been brought to the attention of East Sussex Building Control Partnership, via our umbrella organisation LABC, that on 23 December 2021 the Office for Product Safety Standards (OPSS) issued a prohibition notice relating to 2 non-compliant Kingspan Kooltherm insulation boards.  These are:

 

  • Insulation boards manufactured between 1 August and 18 October 2021, which perform at a lower level than that described and which are covered by the Declaration of Performance (DoP) dated 2 August 2021 (Ref: 1002.CPR.2013.K15.007)

 

  • Insulation boards manufactured from 18 October 2021 which do not have a valid DoP or conformity assessment and that are also covered by the DoP dated 2 August 2021.

 

These prohibitions affect compliance with Regulations 4(3), 7(1), 25, 26, 26A, 29 and any applicable requirements such as those covering Parts B, C and L.

 

It is not known at this stage whether the British Board of Agreement (BBA) will withdraw/suspend their agreement for the product.
