Latest BADGP Newsletter       Member's Download

In 2021 BADGP is looking to publish our Newsletter approximately every 2 months. The Newsletter will contain a variety of articles prepared by BADGP Committee members and from submissions by other organisations and individuals. 

We actively welcome articles from our members and non-members (you can send contributions to enquiries@badgp.org). Articles can be short snippets of news / updates or fuller contributions. We also welcome photos and graphics. The articles cannot be overtly commercial or of a selling nature, but can, of course, mention your company name, website, etc.

For example, we'd be happy to consider articles such as:

  • legislation: for example: planned changes, enforcement issues, interpretation, how you've dealt with a particular issue, etc.
  • news stories pertaining to dangerous goods that you have spotted in journals, newspapers, internet media, etc. (please be aware of copyright issues)
  • case studies
  • technical articles
  • industry developments
  • (Brexit - dare we mention it?)
  • anything else!
