SCCS gains further UKAS accreditation
The Steel Construction Certification Scheme (SCCS) is now UKAS accredited to offer UKCA certification to BS EN ISO/IEC 17065:2012 – Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes and services.
This new accreditation standard will allow SCCS to continue certifying clients for both UKCA and CE+UKNI marking, which was previously undertaken against BS EN ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015 Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems.
SCCS Director of Certification Stephen Blackman, said: “This extension of SCCS’s offering ensures its clients are prepared and have the appropriate certification required from April 2023 when UKAS will no longer accept 17021 accreditation for UKCA marking.”
The SCCS is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the British Constructional Steelwork Association. It was established in the early 1980s to provide quality management certification for steelwork contracting organisations.
It now offers a wide range of certification and monitoring services for the structural steelwork sector, including integrated or separate UKAS accredited Quality, Environmental, Welding Quality and Health & Safety management systems, Factory Production Control systems and selected National Highways Sector Schemes.
