Forthcoming Hose Scheme Conference – 28 November 2019
27 Sep 2019
The BFPDA Approved Hose Assemblies Scheme was established in 1995 and is now the leading industry accreditation scheme for hose manufacturing, distribution and fitting. It sets an accredited and credible standard for the assembly, storage and supply of hose across all sectors.
The Scheme aims to ensure that all hoses displaying the Q-approved logo have been manufactured and supplied to an approved standard by a fully accredited manufacturing company or distributor and complies fully with BS EN ISO 4413 (hydraulic) and/or BS EN ISO 4414 (pneumatic), and the BFPA D8 Quality Control Procedures guidance document.
However, we are not complacent. The maintenance of any quality standard demands that we constantly review that standard and the processes against which it is established and monitored. As a results of the latest review by the BFPDA Council, there have been a number of changes to the D8 document along with proposed alterations to the requirements for becoming a hose scheme member. These changes aim to ensure that the scheme remains fit for purpose and a quality standard that all in the industry should aspire to achieve.
The BFPDA Hose Scheme Conference has been organised to update existing scheme members and inform those considering joining the scheme, of these changes. Over the course of the day, all aspects of the Hose Assemblies Scheme, including its purpose, and the reasons for its continuing importance will be presented.
The Conference will be free of charge and a great opportunity to meet fellow scheme members to discuss this important subject, with Q & A sessions included throughout the day.
