Other Documents

Technical Guidance Document #035

Recently there has been some confusion due to the fact that a major manufacturer of combination ovens states in their installation instructions “The exhaust hood must protrude 300-500 mm [12 – 20 inches] over the front of the unit”. Normally the manufacturer’s instructions take precedent over any other requirements and the purpose of this document is to give guidance on best practice on this subject.

An environmental policy is a written statement, usually signed by senior management, which outlines a business’ aims and principles in relation to managing the environmental effects and aspects of its operations.
