Leka is proud to have achieved LABSS certification as a registered detail.

So what is a registered detail?

LABSS LogoA customer focussed national registration scheme for product manufacturers and suppliers and for building design systems. Real savings in time and costs are possible when you use the Local Authority RD Scheme in support of your building warrant application.

In collaboration with LABC, we provide assessments of standard system component designs and innovative products that will be accepted by local authorities throughout the whole of the UK.

All local authorities accept a Registered Detail as evidence of compliance of the building standards. No further checks, other than local site conditions if appropriate, are made for a product or a design which has been registered with Scheme. This results in faster responses and faster approvals of building projects. The aim of a Registered Detail is to avoid applicants having to undergo a full building warrant assessment each time the same product/system is to be used in a building project and/or constructed in a different local authority area. That way courtesy of a Registered Detail, Architects and Design Engineers can pass on real savings in time and costs.

A Registered Detail has special benefits for you by guaranteeing:

  • Consistent interpretation of building standards,
  • Confidence in a design registered under the Scheme,
  • A fast track through building standards approval,
  • Checks by the local authority will be confined to site related matters, and
  • Provides a readymade library of rigorously checked systems and products for specifiers.
