SATRA launches RIBA-approved flammability seminar

A seminar offered by testing services organisation SATRA, Reaction to fire and CE marking of floorcoverings, is now RIBA-approved CPD material, which means that architects can attend and use it as part of their continuing professional development programme.

SATRA product certification assessor, Andy Craggs, will deliver the seminars either in architects’ offices or at SATRA's headquarters in Kettering.

The main learning aims are: the background to the Construction Products Regulation and which products need to be CE marked; how a fire classification is reached for floorcoverings; how adding fire retardants affects the process; which attestation routes apply to which products; and the role of the notified body.

Those attending the seminar will be able to get an understanding of the necessary documents they should be getting from the manufacturers and suppliers they work with in order to meet relevant European standards and regulations.

To book a seminar or for further information, contact Andy Craggs at SATRA on [email protected] or call 01536 410000.
