Please note that there will be references in these guidance documents and content with respect to previously existing provisions under EU Regulation. As of 1st January 2021 relevant UK rather than EU legislation will apply, and the same for UK designated standards rather than standards cited in the Official Journal of the European Union.

 During early 2021 the SAFed Guidance documents and content will be reviewed, updated and revised on the website. Please continually check back for updates. If there are any questions or queries please contact admin@safed.co.uk

TC8 meets on a regular basis to discuss any matter affecting the inspection of local exhaust ventilation. In addition it produces from time to time specific SAFed Guidelines and Guidance to meet arising situations.
