The secret to keeping your water supply safe

Compliance is an essential part of supplying water fittings in the UK, and for connection to the water supply. This seminar looks at the vital roles and relationships that keep our water supply safe.

At the Bathroom Manufacturers Association, it has been at the heart of our strategy since 2019. Members of the association spend considerable percentages of their budget ensuring they meet the exceptionally high standards required in the UK to protect the water supply from contamination by materials, or water being pulled into the system by backflow or back siphonage through negative pressure in the water system.

The regulations require products to be of an appropriate standard and be suitable for the circumstances they are used for. Therefore, preventing waste, misuse, undue consumption or contamination of water supply and erroneous measurement of water supplied. This is commonly referred to as ‘Regulation 4 complaint’ and is in reference to The Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 Paragraph 4 Requirements for Water Fittings, Paragraph 1.

Find out more about the relationship between manufacturers, water companies, DEFRA, the approval houses, specifiers, contractors, distributors, retailers, architects and installers, and how all these people play an important role in keeping our water supply safe.

How can we future-proof the growth of UK heat networks?

Seen as a critical building block in the recently released Sixth Carbon Budget, heat networks are targeted to meet towards 20% of the UK’s low-carbon heat requirements come 2050. Given that they have only been delivering about a tenth of that amount to date, the scale of the task and the extent of the country’s Net Zero ambition is clear.

The Government is a strong advocate for the energy-efficient and cost-effective attributes of heat networks, which offer the promise of both carbon reduction and lower bills for consumers. The question remains however, how such a dramatic growth rate can be achieved successfully with minimum development and operational risk.

In short, the webinar will explore how we can future-proof the roll-out of UK heat networks.

The discussion will explore both the impact of innovation in the marketplace — around the likes of continuous commissioning, plus support for advanced management tools — and recent guidance updates — including CP1 (2020) Code of Practice, published in January this year, which represents a significant upgrade on the previous 2015 version.

By way of context, the debate will also look at lessons to be learned from success stories with heat networks in other countries and communities, such as those in Scandinavia. 

This session is sponsored by Altecnic.

The Path to Net-zero for Food & Retail

A net zero strategy is critical for the Food & Retail sector. Join sector experts for an interactive discussion on the path forward.

Due to climate change food and retail businesses are at risk of disruption. According to the UN’s Special Report on Climate Change and Land, the sector is responsible for nearly a third of the total greenhouse gas emissions. In turn, investors, regulators, and consumers have increased pressure to make food & retail more sustainable.

Companies are increasingly setting emissions targets and positioning operations to supply products that are more climate friendly.

In this roundtable, sector experts will share years of practical insights including:

  • Setting realistic emission reduction goals
  • Technology and operation considerations
  • Leveraging innovative financial models
  • Managing complex internal stakeholder environments
