Contamination Control interest in the UK has been lacking a strong and effective focus in recent years. Historically the SEE (Society of Environmental Engineers Contamination control group) and S2C2 (Scottish Society for Contamination Control) together with CIBSE and IMechE have covered some industry needs, but not in a modern focused way. In 2018 it was felt that a fresh approach to supporting industry needs was required, hence the birth of the Contamination Control Network (CCN).
The CCN exists to support those interested in the contamination control industry by providing:
- News - giving access to the latest information
- Knowledge - giving access to articles and literature
- Training and education - made available globally and digitally
- Development - helping individuals progress in this industry
- A network - for partnering, collaborating and communicating
- Discounted membership fee when 5 individuals are part of Corporate Membership
- Being part of a professional network of experience & expertise
- Member access to CCN Guidance documents, reference information and updates on standards & practices
- Access to training & education events at advantageous member rates
- Listing in the CCN Services Directory for Corporate Members
- Free receipt of each new edition and archive editions the Clean Air and Containment Review CACR
The constitution is available to view CCN_Constitution_Rev2_Feb2019.pdf. It contains all the important formalities affecting the objectives, organisation and officers (roles and responsibilities). It addresses the all the membership levels, rights and application processes. It also contains important information related to the Management Committee and meetings (the AGM and EGMs).
