Can Tobermore bricks be used below the DPC? (damp proof course)

Yes. Tobermore concrete facing bricks are suitable for use above and below DPC, but not as the actual DPC. The relevant standards BS 5628 and PD 6697: 2010 recommend a minimum compressive strength of 22.5N/mm2 for the majority of locations.
