How often should a fume cupboard be serviced in the UK?
The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations require that all measures provided for controlling exposure to substances hazardous to health are maintained efficiently, in efficient working order and in good repair. These regulations require the thorough examination and testing of local exhaust systems at least every 14 months or more frequently if risk assessments identify a high risk of exposure. This includes fume cupboards. You should inspect your fume cupboard in-house at regular intervals. This will be dependent on the type of application the unit is used for, i.e., how many hours a day the unit is in operation and which chemicals are used. Clean Air offers a free test scheduling service to ensure your fume cupboards never over-run their testing date.
