Join the FIS London and South East Regional Contractors Forum 4pm – 6:30pm on the 5th November at the Atrium near Old Street Station.  Arrival from 3:30pm.

At the event Iain McIlwee, FIS CEO will update delegates on the new Interior Systems Apprentice Standard and FIS Technical Director Joe Cilia will give us an update on FIS tools to support members in managing risk and quality.

We will also be joined by Kizzy Augustin, Partner at Russell Cooke who will be hosting an interactive workshop on the implications for duty holders on installing fire safety products.  The session will include a mock interview under caution that will allow the audience to act as judge and jury for the unfortunate contractor in the dock.

This session will draw on recent case law and new attitudes to building safety to look at how matters could unfold in the event of a real fire.  Following the session there will be opportunity to meet fellow members and chat over a few drinks.
