Safety standards to be observed by football stadiums

Any stadium used for organising football matches must meet the standards defined in the Schedule to the Royal Order dated 6/7/2013 containing the safety standards to be observed by football stadia.

The Royal Order is effective from 1/1/2014.

Electrical equipment and installations must be subject to detailed reports, issued by an approved organisation. These inspections are carried out every year. The organisers make these compliance reports available to the mayor, fire service and officials and agents responsible for ensuring observation of the Order.

It will help you observe your legal obligations. Safety, reliability of operation and comfort are the key words for using an electricity network properly.
