NAADUK (the National Association of Air Duct Specialists), says its new ‘comprehensive guidance document’, NAAD21, ‘sets the standard for the ventilation hygiene sector’.
The Association explains that NAAD21 is the result of ‘a collaboration between experts in our industry and other associations in putting together an easy-to-read reference document for both Grease and Air (Indoor Air Quality)’. It added: “It is embedded throughout the GT0F 04 SCQF Level 5 (NVQ2): Ventilation Hygiene Certificate, and forms the qualification’s core, covering the practices and procedures of the BSEHV11, the National Occupational Standard for cleaning industrial and commercial ventilation systems. This is a qualification previously unavailable within the industry.”
NAADUK Chair, Jonathan Brennan, said: “I would like to thank both the members of NAADUK who have put this document together, and the other associations, institutions, and universities that have supplied time, knowledge, and expertise to support and enhance this guidance. NAADUK hopes the guidance will not only help ductwork technicians, but also insurers, procurement departments, specifiers, and trainers, in delivering safety and compliance, and assuring competence within our industry. Following the Grenfell tragedy, it is important to this association that this advice is made freely available to all.”
Peter Reid, NAADUK’s President says he is ‘extremely proud of the Association’s members for putting together a world-leading guidance document in air-conditioning, already recognised in other countries worldwide, and directly compliant with the Dame Hackett review for technical information to be freely available’.
