International trade association CEDIA will be exhibiting on stand 94 at the ED&I Expo, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham, September 6-7.
On the exhibition floor, visitors will have the opportunity to experience the latest innovations and meet with fellow industry experts to find out more about all that CEDIA has to offer. For those involved in the planning, design, specification or installation of home electronic and wiring systems, CEDIA staff will be on hand to provide information on member services and benefits. This includes the latest training courses and certification programmes for electrical professionals of all skills and experience levels.
Simon Buddle, CEDIA’s EMEA education director, will also be presenting a seminar on the current industry standards and regulations at the event, free for visitors to attend. As both an active volunteer in CEDIA’s education work for many years, and as EMEA education director, Buddle has taught at UK Expos, ISE and at events across the world. In CEDIA’s dedicated seminar entitled Smart Home Infrastructure Best Practice, Simon will look at the criteria that will become important to home technology integrators in an increasingly regulated world.
Buddle will be discussing the new CEDIA BSI PAS 34591, the BS EN15232 and Part L1A of Building Regulations (Conservation of Fuel and Power in New Dwellings). The talk will examine the ways in which these standards and useful guidelines can enhance skills, knowledge and keep businesses ahead of competitors. The seminar will feature at the show twice, once on Wednesday September 6 at 12:45pm and again on Thursday September 7 at 3:45pm.
CEDIA’s latest Publicly Available Specification (PAS) by the British Standards Institution (BSI) is titled Design and Installation of Telecommunications and Broadcast Infrastructure within the Home. Featuring the latest technical standards and regulations required when designing and installing a wiring infrastructure, the PAS is a tool for technology integrators. It acts as a basis for any residential cabling design and is scalable for all residencies, accessible for architects, M&E consultants, and developers alike. This means CEDIA members are seen as providing the highest quality service, equipped with the knowledge to specify the correct wiring infrastructure for each individual project.
