Welcome to the Falcon Timber Door Manufacturer Survey.

On the 23rd of December, the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities announced an Open Consultation into, amongst other things, removal of the national classification (BS 476 series) for construction products and requirement for all relevant construction products to be tested to the British standard version of the European standard.

Should this change be implemented, Falcon Timber are keen to ensure that the service and evidence we offer is minimally affected. We would like our customers to complete this short survey in order to gauge reaction to this consultation and establish what impact this might have on businesses.
