Brexit and other news

We keep our members informed of the changing landscape of the gas safety industry. Current concerns are Brexit and product certification, decarbonising the energy supply and long-term health, safety and wellbeing of workers and family.

Leaving the EU will impact all safety certificates for products being imported and exported. As the UK negotiates with the EU, each certification body is planning for the future landscape, however it may be defined. CoGDEM keeps its members briefed on government positions and certifying bodies’ publicly available plans.

CoGDEM lobbies on behalf of the gas detection industry, often appearing on request to represent the industry at hearings and committee meetings. We keep our members informed of recent government correspondence and meetings at each CoGDEM meeting.
