Signage

Hazchem Signs - Following an inspection by our local fire service, we have been told that we should display Hazchem signs on the gate of our garden centres because we stock LPG. Contrary to this I have told by our gas supplier that because the quantities are small we are not Hazchem registered and do not have to display Hazchem signs. We do of course have the mandatory no smoking etc signs on the gas cages. Can you clarify?

I understand that in time Fire Exit Directional Signage will conform to the EU standard, removing text information. I have a new site where I need to install signage and would like to know the expected time frame to this change and whether you would advise us installing the EU standard in preparation.
