SCCS becomes the 5th Recognised Assessment Body for Build UK’s Common Assessment Standard

Posted on by in News

The Steel Construction Certification Scheme (SCCS) has become the fifth recognized assessment body for Build UK’s Common Assessment Standard (CAS).

There are two CAS offerings for companies; SCCS Build Assured Lite (desktop assessment) and SCCS Build Assured Elite (a more comprehensive site-based assessment).

“SCCS is delighted to become a Recognized Assessment Body for Build UK’s Common Assessment Standard, which helps streamline the PQ process for companies, as well as supporting enhanced requirements for supply chains, while raising the bar in a cost-effective and efficient way,” said Stephen Blackman, BCSA Director of Certification.

The Common Assessment Standard (CAS) is a standardised set of questions, which incorporates PAS 91 and corresponding assessment standards, covering 10 key areas to assess a company’s competency.

It has been developed to minimise duplication in the PQ process and is being adopted by many main contractors across the UK. Data can be shared with other accredited suppliers to minimise the need to complete numerous assessments.
