The IHE North West Branch would like to invite you to an online CPD event on 18th March 2024 presented by Pole Products – Hydro Extrusion BV.


The presentation will give an overview of the updated norm. It looks at the different performance characteristics of the three passive safe classifications and explains in detail how the different classifications are written. It will explain the mandatory requirements of the norm, the testing regime and the rationale behind the different performance types. It will give the audience a “checklist” for the basic information they need to begin the speciation process
