British Gypsum's White Book has long been a bible for the industry in drylining and plastering. To maintain the quality of its service standards the company has also introduced The Complete Specification Guide, an interactive cd-rom that has been developed in conjunction with riba Services. The in-depth guide provides information on NBS model-specification clauses, cdm regulations, test data on British Gypsum products and a product selector, plus all the essential elements of the company's comprehensive technical support services. This complements the company's technical experts who are willing and able to provide assistance on all products and procedures. Further information, together with comprehensive credentials on British Gypsum and links to bpb and other key sites is available through British Gypsum's website at www.british-gypsum.bpb.co.uk
