EU Update

8 May - LUPC office, London

The EU Update (half-day) course is designed to provide delegates with an insight into the changes brought about by the transposition into UK Legislation of the 2014 Public and Utilities Sector Directives, and the national obligations. The course addresses the key changes and considers the impact of some of the practical applications.
