Giles Willson, GGF Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Technical Affairs comments “It is pleasing to see these publications completed after all the hard work and expertise the GGF Technical team and GGF Members have contributed over the last few months. As regulations change and new legislation introduced, we will continue to update our publications and technical documents or add to our portfolio, to ensure we keep our Members completely up to speed with the changes.”

A printed copy of each publication will be sent to Members within the next week.
