This year, BASEC has launched a series of cable quality seminars designed for those who are involved in projects where cable installations are vital to the successful operation of their facilities

Often the requirements of cable are overlooked or left until last, as typically electrical wiring is the last installation on a construction site.

Sadly, it often takes a tragedy before questions are raised about the impact of poor-quality building materials. As cables are commonly the cause of fire, BASEC is keen to raise awareness and promote good practices for those responsible in the specification of these products. Educating the construction industry plays a pivotal part in ensuring that any potential risks of fire to building inhabitants are minimised.

The sessions will focus on understanding the implications of poor-quality cables, the outcomes of fire testing and more-they are especially relevant to those working across the supply chain; from specifiers, consultants, architects, purchasing, to the main contractor, end-users and installers.

The Cable Quality seminar in Dubai, organised in collaboration with Ducab, aims to give consultants and users an opportunity to learn from Ducab?s experiences, while increasing awareness about independent cable testing and certification.

With safety now at the forefront of everything we do, do not miss your opportunity to learn more about cable safety. The Dubai seminar takes place on Wednesday 30 October 2019. Register online at
