Signage and labeling

Where BREEAM requires signage or labeling, it must be fit for purpose:

  • Permanent, robust signage securely attached to a fixed structure or support or permanent ground markings, as appropriate.
  • Outdoor signage must also be weatherproof.


Examples of non-compliance:

  • Paper or cardboard signage (laminated or otherwise).
  • Easily removable signs, e.g. fixed with generic adhesive tape or outdoor signage mounted on an insubstantial or untreated timber support or stake.
