BIFCA’s annual Standards and Regulations Seminar

BIFCA’s annual Standards and Regulations Seminar will be held on 15 September 2021 alongside, and in support of, the Future of Furnaces two-day showcase.

This year’s seminar will be held on-line and once again we aim to update and inform the industry on the various safety standards and regulations affecting all aspects of our sector.

Central to the theme is the continuation of the evolving standards work within the suite of EN746 standards which will be presented by Lars Boehmer of CECOF. Even though Brexit has now happened, many UK industries are entrenched in safety standards developed in conjunction with our European partners over many years and it is likely that the work mandated within these reference texts will continue as European documents within a national framework.

The expert speakers have vast experience and will highlight key changes and updates occurring within the last twelve months in relation to safety, design and use of various types of furnace equipment. Legislation comes in the form of both standards and regulation effected by directives such as the machinery directive.

If you are interested in submitting a presentation for the BIFCA seminar please contact the Association:

We particularly welcome papers from end users on the impact of furnace standards in all types of applications.
