Admin updates 
Purchase orders - Please ensure all purchase orders are emailed to our mailbox at: as we are finding an increasing amount are being
automatically sent to our finance department in Wakefield resulting in delays in your orders being processed.

Certificates & Manuals - Please be mindful that due to current postal delays your manuals and certificates may take longer to arrive so please ensure you allow plenty of time.

We have changed the set up of our evaluations which have resulted in new QR codes:
