Training for pre-commissioning cleaning of pipework systems
In October 2021, BSRIA updated its pre-commissioning cleaning of pipework systems training course to reflect guidance provided in the amended 6th edition of the BSRIA guide, Pre-Commission Cleaning of Pipework Systems (BG 29/2021).
The updated course provides a better understanding of the issues and procedures involved with pre-commission cleaning and is aimed at those involved in pre-commission cleaning or overseeing the process. It will cover the main principles of pre-commission cleaning (as set out in BG 29/2021) and will provide:
- Knowledge of the process of bringing a closed heating or cooling system to a satisfactory state for commissioning and ongoing maintenance of water quality.
- Familiarity with the main principles of pre-commission cleaning.
- Awareness of the 2021 guidance changes and updates.
- Understanding of the issues and procedures involved with pre-commission cleaning.
 What is pre-commission cleaning?
Pre-commission cleaning of pipework systems is an essential stage in ensuring that closed heating and cooling systems are brought to a satisfactory state in preparation for commissioning and ongoing maintenance.
BSRIA first produced guidance on pre-commission cleaning of pipework systems in 1991. The guidance is regularly updated to ensure it continues to lead the industry towards best practice. Systems designed and cleaned in accordance with BSRIA's guidance are far less likely to experience operating problems.
 Course availability
The course, delivered by Dr Pamela Simpson — Chartered Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology and Water Management Society — is available for bookings to attend online. Bookings can be made through the BSRIA website by clicking here.
