Link to Resources on COVID-19 for IOR Members from various engineering, building services and construction bodies. This list is being updated continually.


Dear Members

As we are all experiencing challenging and unprecedented times, I am writing to confirm that the IOR is continuing to operate with all staff working from home.  Office phones will go to answerphone and you will be called back - please email to get a quicker response.

We have changed all meetings to webinars for the foreseeable future – IOR is well prepared to run web-based meetings and conference calls and has done so for some time.  If you are a member of a committee or booked onto any event you will be sent a webinar registration link so that this important work can continue.  IOR also has eLearning training, webinars on RACHP technical topics and issues new publications online every quarter. 

We hope that this technical information and services will support our members who are working hard to keep food chains robust, hospitals safe, and necessary industrial processes or buildings operational.

On behalf of the Trustees and staff at the IOR and SES we wish all of our members, both in the UK and internationally, and those we work with good health.
