Working in partnership with LABC, and  in co-operation with Wood Campus, the Wood Protection Association has developed this e-learning course, along with other resources, to help Building Control Officers to improve their understanding of how wood behaves in a fire and how to enhance that performance to comply with Building Regulations and other regulatory requirements and so ultimately to build safer buildings. This course is equally applicable to all involved in the specification, use and regulation of flame retardant treated wood products.:
