Concrete Block Association

The Concrete Block Association is the trade body representing manufacturers of aggregate concrete building block in Great Britain. In 1999 they replaced the Aggregate Concrete Block Association. The CBA publish a series of data sheets, which offer useful and detailed technical guidance on many typical block applications.

Document Status Indicators

Green The Green document status indicator indicates that the document is:
  • (a) current in the Construction Information Service and
  • (b) the latest version - ie it does not have any other documents that replace or amend it and is promoted as a current document by the publisher.
Amber The Amber document status indicator indicates that some caution is needed when using this document - it is either:
  • (a) current in the Construction Information Service but has a document or documents that replace or amend it, so please look at the "Newer Versions" tab or
  • (b) not in the Construction Information Service but with another reason why it may be relevant to our customers such as being cited in NBS or in the Building Regulations Approved Documents. Again there may be more recent versions of the document.
Red The Red document status indicator indicates that the document is an old version
  • The document has likely been withdrawn by the publisher, also the meta data presented here may be out of date as it is no longer being maintained by the editorial teams at NBS.
