Plumb and Parts Center’s Understanding ErP roadshows are coming to a close in mid-July. The events have been helping gas engineers to understand the new EU Energy related Products (ErP) regulations, which come into force on 26th September – and the implications for their businesses.
The free evening roadshows will have visited 40 locations across the UK, finishing in Plymouth on Thursday 16 July.
People have been finding out which heating products will be affected, what manufacturers have been doing to prepare for the regulatory changes, and how Plumb and Parts Center and participating manufacturers are making understanding ErP as straightforward as possible.
Adam Richards from Falcon Gas Services, who attended the Birmingham roadshow, said: “I didn’t know much about ErP before the event and it’s great to have more knowledge. It won’t be as hard as I thought it would be. The presentations made it easy to understand and it won’t be too hard to add this to the installation and benchmarking requirements where necessary.”
Ayden Underwood of Gas Services Tamworth agreed, adding: “I was aware of ErP but concerned about what I would need to do. However the presentations explained the process and it will become easier once we start. We do a lot of commercial work and I will be using this knowledge to help me educate companies keen to save money.”
Chris Roberts of Chris Roberts Plumbing & Heating Ltd chipped in: “The evening was definitely useful, clarified a lot of things and I can’t see any issues going forward. Our customers are becoming more aware of energy efficiency and this should help them make better choices and have confidence that we are giving them the best options that suit their needs.”
In addition to refreshments on arrival, there will be short, informative presentations from four manufacturers at each event, plus the opportunity to ask questions and find out more afterwards.
