Legislation & Compliance

Understand your responsibilities, and access the expert help that can make compliance easier.

We can guide you through the legislation and help you to be compliant

The failure of a piece of air compressor equipment can do far more than put a temporary halt to production. It can cause major damage to your premises, and injure or even kill.

For that reason, any business using air compressor equipment is required to comply with legislation designed to ensure that equipment is tested, maintained and certified by a “competent person”.

You can find out more about the legislation, your responsibilities, and how we can help you on these pages:
