Our Best Practice Data Sheets are no longer available… find out why?

For many years we have provided helpful literature on specific topics in the form of our “Best Practice Data Sheets”. These guidance sheets were available on our website and downloadable in PDF format… all these PDF sheets have now been removed but all is not lost!

As well as a standalone download on our main website, the data sheet PDFs used to be reference in various sections within TGN Online linking you to the additional literature. This worked well but we increasingly found that people want to see the information in one place and with the TGN (Technical Guidance Notes) being a form of “best practice” guidance in itself, we decided to move all the Best Practice Data Sheets into TGN Online to keep all our information in one place.

Where is the data sheet information now?

Having moved 25 Best Practice Data Sheets into TGN Online, we have created a summary list of each sheet and where the information is it now located.
