BIFM to Badge Legal Update Journal

The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) has announced it is to promote the Facilities Management Legal Update journal, published by the Workplacelaw Network. The journal will in future be published in association with BIFM and RICS.

Facilities Management Legal Update has been published since February 1997, and is now in its sixth year. It has consistently been the first publication to break the latest legal news to facilities managers, notably changes to fire safety, disability access, and asbestos management regulations.

As a part of the association with the Workplacelaw Network, BIFM members will now be able to subscribe to the Facilities Management Legal Update deal at a discount of 10% off the normal rate of £129 per year.

Publishing Director at the Workplacelaw Network Ciaron Dunne said: “We have been talking to the BIFM for some time now about the benefits of working together to help the FM industry become more widely recognised. We believe this joint initiative will help to put both the BIFM and the journal even more firmly on the map.”
