BS 851188 - British Standard for flood resistance products

In recent years, we’ve seen the impact of climate change with increasing rainfalls and the rise in sea levels, disrupting normal lives of people in the UK and mainland Europe. They’ve also underlined the importance of flood-resistance products and systems to communities and local and national economies. 

But there is some good news: the flood-resistance industry is evolving to meet the increased demand for effective flood-resistant products and systems.

One of the keys to this evolution is the new British Standard, BS 851188.

Published on October 1st 2019, BS 851188 replaces the previous publicly-available specification for flood-protection products and systems, PAS 1188.
