SCCS gains UKAS accreditation
The Steel Construction Certification Scheme (SCCS) has achieved accreditation by UKAS against BS OHSAS 18001:2007. This was achieved at the end of an 18 month period of document preparation, assessor training and audits all overseen by UKAS. The new accreditation complements the existing BS EN ISO 9001:2008 and BS EN ISO 14001:2004.
SCCS is also accredited for National Highways Sector Schemes 19A (For corrosion protection of ferrous materials by industrial coatings) and 20 (For execution of steelwork in transportation infrastructure assets).
The SCCS was established in 1986 to meet the demand for a technically capable certification body specifically for companies engaged in design, manufacture and erection of structural steelwork and its associated products and services.
The scheme’s objective is to secure high standards of excellence and quality of design, manufacturing and erection processes and associated construction procedures and practices in the steelwork construction industry through independent certification to specific standards.
