This popular event is currently being delivered as A FREE half-day webinar.

We offer four hours of Continuing Professional Development to this event which provides vital information regarding passive fire protection. We deliver a UK version - one covers the law in England and Wales. We also run an event which covers Scotland because of the differences in the legislation which apply geographically.  

This seminar was designed to inform individuals with responsibility for fire prevention, on their legal responsibilities and how to ensure the competency of those they appoint to help meet them.

Through a series of short presentations, BM TRADA and a panel of industry experts will provide essential guidance for those responsible for the fire prevention measures in their buildings, on their legal responsibilities and how to ensure the competency of those companies and individuals they will need to appoint to help meet them.
