NERC Guidance for Fume Cupboards
This interesting guide produced by NERC in 2007 refers to the new EN 14175 which replaces BS 7258 and further refers to NERC containment values which are more stringent than those in the EN.
It is intended to support the NERC Procedure No19, COSHH and provides guidance on legislation applicable to fume cupboards, specifications for fume cupboards and their safe use.
Guidance is provided for:
(a) planned preventative maintenance to meet the Statutory requirement for thorough inspection under the COSHH Regulations and
(b) the proof of satisfactory containment as required by NERC
