Scald Prevention Legislation May 2009

Following a lengthy campaign headed by the member of Parliament for Wakefield, Mary Creagh there has been a successful alteration to English legislation requiring the incorporation of thermistor mixing valves (TMVs) in all new and renovated properties  as part of the revised building regulations.  The success of this campaign was based on contributions from many experts and included the use of statistics derived from the International Burn Injury Database (iBID).  This once again demonstrated the value and power of comprehensive national statistics collected over a significant period of time when used to inform political debate.
