Webinar title: Driving innovation and growth with the first national standard for flood products.

: 24 February 2021

In recent years, we’ve seen the impact of climate change with increasing rainfalls and the rise in sea levels, disrupting normal lives of people in the UK and mainland Europe. And as flood resistance is being more widely associated with public safety, well-being and financial security, how can businesses be sure that their products are fit for purpose?

Taking flood protection to the next level, the new British Standard BS 851188 can fit exactly those requirements.   

Join us on this webinar where experts from BSI and the Environment Agency discuss changes in the new standard and how to initiate growth and innovation in a few easy steps.
