WWEM 2012 – Ready to go

WWEM 2012The organisers of WWEM 2012, the environmental monitoring event, are urging visitors to plan ahead if they want to get the best out of their visit.

WITH two major conferences and more than 70 workshops lined up delegates have been advised to manage their time to ensure they attend the most relevant presentations and still leave time to visit the exhibition where an “enormous quantity” will be on show.
WWEM 2012 is the fifth in the series of highly successful events and will return to the Telford International Centre November 7-8 with the latest information on regulations, standards, methods and the technology employed in laboratory, field and process monitoring applications.
The exhibition will feature 120 leading organisations in environmental monitoring while both conferences are supported by The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM).
The opening conference, 2012 Update on Regulation and Certification, is aimed at municipal or industrial organisations with a discharge consent, as well as consultants, contractors, instrument manufacturers, regulators, academia and researchers. The opening presentation will be given by John Tipping from the Environment Agency (EA) who will provide an update on the Industrial Emissions Directive and outline its regulatory effects through 2013.
Andrew Chappell, also from the EA, will continue the European theme by explaining the advantages of coordinating instrument certification procedures and test methods with other countries. He will also report on recent work to develop a CEN standard based on the current MCERTS procedures for the assessment of water instruments.
And as MCERTS gains a greater hold in the water sector, Bob Cooper from SIRA will review its progress and explain future developments. He will also outline a number of case studies demonstrating international recognition of the scheme.
The potential impact of solar radiation on ultrasonic level sensors will be discussed by Andy Godley from WRc and the EA’s Rick Gould will deliver the final presentation, outlining the development of operator monitoring assessment.
