BFPA Minimum Educational Recommendations (MERs)

07 May, 2021

BFPA believes that anyone who operates and maintains fluid power components and systems should have a basic minimum understanding of either hydraulics, pneumatics or electronic control systems to ensure that they are working safely. To this end, the BFPA Education and Training Committee has developed a set of Minimum Educational Recommendations (MERs) for use in the fluid power industry, which should be regarded as the industry standard. These recommendations cover hydraulics, pneumatics and electronic control of fluid power systems.

Following discussions with the Department for International Trade (DIT), BFPA has been invited to sit on the DIT Technical Barriers to Trade Thematic Working Group (TBT Working Group).

The Terms of Reference actually say; “To make sure that Trade Policy is set on the basis of the views expressed by industry.”
