SAFEX Newsletter No.68, 1st Qtr 2019

It has been a busy 3 months for SAFEX with a Board of Governors meeting at the end of January and the CIE/IGUS Conference in Namibia. The latter was very successful and well attended. Several issues around testing of emulsions for the UN Series 8 and the classification of ammonium nitrate were discussed.

Arrangements for the 2020 Congress is well in hand and notifications will be sent during the course of this year. The final call for papers was met with a very good response and the call for abstracts and papers will be issued in the next few months.

A series on incident recall kicks off with the explosion at Sierra Chemicals .Andy Begg delivered this talk at the Congress in Istanbul .There is a lot of good learning in this report and we call on all members to come forward with “old” incidents for future publication- history tends to repeat itself and this vicious circle can only be broken by learning from the past.
