Policy updates

Updates to policies

SCP28 Pressure Systems has been updated and is available in the Policy Centre.
The SCP covers pressure and steam systems – such as heating systems, autoclaves, commercial steam irons, hydraulic accumulators and commercial coffee boiler systems. It does not cover hot water urns.
It is of interest to purchasers, users, maintenance staff and managers of such pressure systems. There are no major changes in this update, however there is new information on ‘condensate induced water hammer’ (arising from a HSE alert) – with additional controls to take regarding this failure mode in steam systems.

SCP21 Non-Ionising Radiation - Laser and Optical Radiation has been updated and is available in the Policy Centre.
This SCP concentrates on Laser & Optical Radiation - other non-ionising radiations such as electromagnetic fields, microwaves and radio waves will be covered in another SCP.
It is of interest to users and purchasers of laster or equipment containing lasers. There are no major changes in this update. The revised SCP includes updated definitions of laster classifications, examples of the new styles of labels for lasers and the inclusion of type 1C lasers (e.g. hair removal equipment).
