Shared services deliver numerous benefits, particularly with increasing pressures to reduce costs and do more for less.



RIAMS is the platform through which to explore the latest guidance in environmental health and exchange best practice through peer-to-peer discussion.

RIAMS (Regulatory Information and Management System) has been in existence for well over a decade and serves 60% of local authorities across the UK.

Within its Libraries section, it provides a wide range of up-to-date, relevant and reliable insight for regulatory professionals, covering the following:

·         Administration

·         Planning

·         Enforcement

·         Environmental crime

·         Environmental protection

·         Food hygiene

·         Health and safety

·         Housing

·         Licensing

·         Pest control

·         Public health

Procedures and guidance are reviewed on an annual basis, to ensure they remain current. Within these, users can upload local content, for example, contact details within a department, allowing you to tailor things to your requirements.

It provides a wealth of benefits for housing practitioners including:

·        ·         Regularly updated procedures and documents

·         Complete with legal notices

·         Free ‘new content’ request service

·         A place to share folders and best practice

·         The ability to create communities for knowledge sharing

·         An opportunity to earn CPD hours

·         Enable new ways of working

What’s new?

RIAMS Libraries and Communities is ever evolving, with new content, discussions and updates. In RIAMS Libraries we have seen a flurry of updated content around pollution control, surveying residential premises, nuisance, defective water closets, unauthorised encampments, investigating odour from commercial premises, entry by warrant, health and wellbeing and air quality monitoring, amongst others. 

Peer-to-peer discussions continue on RIAMS Communities; seeing a variety of rich conversations around private water supplies and housing, and informative posts from the Association of Chief Environmental Health Officers, alongside guidance from well-respected contributors such as ASB specialist Jim Nixon and private water expert David Clapham
