Published September 2020 | Download PDF Version
For your peace of mind, SAI Global has also added a new explanatory note for clarification purposes which makes reference to DTS provision C1.9(a)(i)
The following note has been added by SAI Global to Page 4 of Dincel's CodeMark Certificate of Conformity:
"Note: As compliance with Performance Requirement CP2 - Spread of fire has been demonstrated for external walls, there is no need to certify against the corresponding deemed-to-satisfy provision C1.9(a)(i) for the Dincel Wall itself."*
*C1.9(a)(i) is the DTS provision in the BCA for non-combustible construction for external walls.
CODEMARK CERTIFICATE OF CONFORMITY
The CodeMark Certificate of Conformity verifies that Dincel is compliant with BCA 2019 Amendment 1 for the following:
External and internal loadbearing wall applications
Walls with joints or penetrations
Bush fire prone areas (up to and including BAL-FZ)
The CodeMark scheme was developed by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB), and as such CodeMark certificates receive mandatory acceptance under State and Territory building control legislation.
The BRAC Certificate of Accreditation verifies that Dincel is compliant with the performance requirement CP2 - Spread of fire, and subsequently confirms that Dincel can be used where a non-combustible external wall is required.
A BRAC Certificate of Accreditation is proof by the Building Regulations Advisory Committee that a product meets performance requirements of the BCA.
The BRAC is an independent statutory body appointed under Division 4 of Part 12 of the Building Act 1993 - Victoria.
