FOSFA Circulars

For the trade,
By the trade,
With the trade

We regularly communicate important information to our members. The FOSFA circulars convey policy decisions and changes to the content of publications, which can include contract terms, rules, codes of practices and events. 

They are the main way we communicate and will be issued electronically to all members, specific membership categories or on a section basis. All circulars are added to the website at the end of each month. 

While expired circulars that are no longer relevant, such as information about events, will be removed from the websites, policy statements are retained so they can be easily found and read by members.
