Circulars are the Federation’s main communications medium to convey policy decisions, changes to the content of publications (for example, contract terms, rules, codes, qualifications, events etc) and are issued to all member or specific categories of membership or on a section basis.

They are circulated electronically, and uploaded on to the site at the end of the month.

Circular Management

Time expired circulars will be removed from the listing (eg events), however policy statements are retained in the section headed ‘Policy’ with the topic table and date.
