OCCA is continuing to monitor the ongoing situation with respect to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). We are following official UK government guidelines, which advise on how to contain, delay and mitigate the spread of the virus.
In line with the most recent government official guidance, all face to face OCCA meetings and events have been cancelled until further notice. However, we are focusing our efforts into providing a number of new online initiatives, including our newly launched Weekly Webinar series, Council & team meetings, networking and social events, primarily via our new Zoom platform.
Please see our website and social media platforms for details of all planned events, including booking links where appropriate.
We are delighted to be able re-join OCCA as we move into the new post Brexit era. OCCA membership offers the opportunity to work alongside members from our key markets including coatings, ink, adhesives and a diverse range of associated specialist industries, Understanding their needs more closely and developing future Quality Control solutions will lead to a successful future partnership, and we are very much looking forward to re-engaging with OCCA and it’s members at future events including Surfex and the SCI publications.
