The RoSPA website has been built with compatibility for most major browsers in mind, including Internet Explorer 8 to 11. We do however recommend that you use the latest version of your chosen browser to get the best out of the site. We provide no support for Internet Explorer 6 or 7 and below.
The majority of links around the RoSPA site are indicated by red text which underlines when you hover your cursor over it. File downloads have a set of icons associated with them. See below.
We also have a policy of not opening any links in new windows, to keep window clutter to a minimum.
You'll find that downloadable documents on the RoSPA site have icons to indicate what sort of file they are, and what program you'll need to be able to read them.
Wherever possible we have converted documents into Adobe PDF format. Most operating systems can download and run the software needed to read PDF files, called Abobe Reader.
