The guidance in this technical bulletin is currently under review with a view to incorporating it into Certification Performance Criteria B6.2.

If using the current version please note the following:

  • It is no longer permissible to place protective barriers within buildings in risk groups 2A, 2B and 3 on Schedule 1, so Section 5 is not always applicable.

We would welcome any comments you have about the guidance that should be given to Certifiers on Certifying the Structural Design of Protective Barriers. Please send comments to
