Posted on: 17 August 2020

Devon, Somerset and Torbay Trading Standards Service is pleased to announce it has issued an Amended General Safety Certificate to Exeter Rugby Club to allow its Premiership season to continue at Sandy Park in “Behind Closed Doors” conditions.

The Certificate, which was issued prior to the match vs Leicester Tigers, is issued under the Safety of Sports Ground Act 1975 and follows advice from the Safety Advisory Group for the ground and amended Operational Plans which detail the precautions to be taken to mitigate the risk of Coronavirus transmission and restricts the people allowed to attend to those needed to ensure the match takes place.

The Certificate can be inspected by contacting Trading Standards at tradingstandards@devon.gov.uk or phoning the MyDevon call centre on 0345 155 1015.
