a: Work experience in months is based on a nominal 40 hours/week or the legal week of work. When an individual is working in excess of 40 hours per week, he may be credited with experience based on the total hours, but he shall be required to produce evidence of this experience.


b: The possible reductions in duration of experience are as described in the scheme, provided that, when several reductions are applicable, the total reduction does not exceed 50% of the experience duration. Any reduction does require acceptance by BRIPC.
