SCA secures CIBSE accreditation for second CPD course

The Smoke Control Association (SCA) has announced that it has secured CIBSE accreditation for its latest CPD presentation aimed at building consultants, engineers, contactors and designers with an interest in the design, specification and installation of smoke control systems in apartment buildings.

Based on the original SCA guidance document – Guidance on Smoke Control to Common Escape Routes in Apartment Buildings – this is the second SCA CPD presentation to be accredited by CIBSE after passing the professional body’s rigorous approval process.

The course provides valuable insight into the SCA guide to common escape routes in apartment buildings. As well as describing appropriate types of product and fitting location, the presentation clarifies the various BS/EN standards a smoke control system must adhere to fulfil competency and compliance standards.

It is anticipated that this latest CPD course will help to educate and inform delegates on the importance of smoke control in high rise buildings, helping to encourage best practice and raising industry standards across the board. For further information visit or email

The SCA will also be presenting this CPD course as a webinar at 11am on Thursday 16th June. Anyone interested in attending should contact Allan Hurdle for details on how to register –
