Issue 7 - autumn 2017

Welcome back to “the Professional”, the newsletter for Approved Contractors.

It has been a few years since the last issue of the Professional, but we are back and hoping to keep you regularly updated on issues relating to the Water Fittings Regulations.

The Professional is intended to bring you up to date with regulation interpretations, matters concerning membership, and case studies with installation issues to avoid – consider it continual professional development (CPD).

In the Professional we will bring you up to date with changes to the scheme, highlight some pressing issues water companies come across, and provide an insight into the products you are likely to be installing. As a minimum, we will provide you with two newsletters per year.

Please pass a copy of The Professional to all WIAPS members employed by your company.

The Professional is your newsletter, so be sure to have your say at the end and be in with a chance of winning some goodies!
