WRAS update - 24 March 2020

We wanted to provide an update on some of the steps we have taken, in line with the latest government advice. 

Contacting us

The WRAS office is now closed and all our staff are now remote working.

If you have an enquiry you can email on info@wras.co.uk alternatively you can call us on 01495 98 30 10. Please note this is a new number

Our training

Inline with government advice on social distancing, we have taken the decision to postpone all face to face water regulations training courses until the end of June. We hope to rearrange courses as soon as government advice allows this.Those already booked onto courses, will be able to attend a rescheduled course or ask for a refund.

This does not apply to RPZ training, which can be completed remotely. This training will continue as planned. However, we will be distributing learning packs electronically rather than sending hard copies by post.

WIAPS applications

We will seek to manage all applications and renewals electronically. We will be unable to send out updated membership cards whilst our office remains closed.

The WRAS approvals scheme

Working with our product approvals group and recognised test laboratories we are putting plans in place to enable WRAS to continue approving products as far as possible. We will provide further details when these arrangements are confirmed.

Further changes

We will continue to monitor and adapt any of our processes as needed as the situation continues to evolve. In the meantime, we will focus all our efforts on acting responsibly and transparently during this period of uncertainty, to ensure we continue to do all the right things to support our people and customers and to maintain our services.

Thank you for your continued support.
