The dangers of counterfeit spare parts – CIPHE video
As part of our involvement with the CIPHE (Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering) we are supporting their campaign against counterfeit and non-compliant gas parts entering the market.
One of the roles of the CIPHE is to benefit the safety and health of the public and learning about illegal gas parts being installed into gas boilers is a shocking revelation.
This is a complicated issue that affects many manufacturing sectors, not just those represented by the CIPHE. It can involve many legal areas including breach of intellectual property (patents, design rights etc), health and safety issues and result in criminal prosecutions, the involvement of trading standards as well as civil claims.
If this is a matter that is concerning you, Peter Adkins or Sarah Bingham are always happy to discuss issues you may have and see if we can assist.
