ICP Technical Refresh begins
New opportunities for FRAs as the ICP’s mid term Technical Refresh begins
In the run-up to the Technical Refresh, due to be completed by late 2014, work has already begun. This is intended to allow for the safety, performance and comfort benefits made possible by developments in materials, fabrics and designs in the complete head-to-toe range since the original technical and user trials to be incorporated into the standard specification at the conclusion of the refresh programme. It will also provide an ideal opportunity for other FRAs to take advantage of a tried and tested programme which has already realised major benefits for existing users.
