A year of successful campaigning on behalf of Scotland’s professional electricians will be marked at the 107th AGM of SELECT.
The meeting, which will be held at the Grange Manor Hotel in Grangemouth on Wednesday 5th June, will feature a Technical Update presented by Dave Forrester, Head of Technical Services.
Dave’s technical update will focus on the new Fire Detection and Fire Alarm Systems in Dwellings regulations. An amendment to BS 5839-6 this year brings changes to standards for fire detection and fire alarm systems. In Scotland, further changes are coming due to the extension of the tolerable standard and updated guidance on the repairing standard that will see the introduction of enhanced fire safety requirements across Scotland’s housing stock.
SELECT Managing Director, Alan Wilson said: “2018/19 has been an eventful time for the organisation and we have stepped up our efforts across a number of fronts, maintaining and improving the profile of companies and individuals within the industry.
“We are particularly pleased to have been able to cope with record demand on our training offering, especially for our BS 7671 (18th Edition) courses. We are also encouraged with the steady progress of our campaign for recognition of the profession of electrician which is gaining significant momentum and is attracting the attention of decision makers at the highest levels.”
