SCI starts product certification

Posted on by in News

Following a four-month market research programme on product certification in the cold rolled steel sector, the Steel Construction Institute (SCI) has developed its own product certification to this sector.

The research was carried out by Mark Wilkinson, a consultant employed by SCI who has almost 30 years’ experience in the construction industry.

Mr Wilkinson visited and talked with manufacturers, warranty providers and trade associations to gain an understanding of the current certification available. His discussions are said to have had a particular focus on the service levels and support received from the certification bodies, as well as the value of carrying such certification.

“As a result of the high levels of interest and very positive research results we are pleased to announce that from the 1st March SCI began the detailed development of a certification scheme, for which it will seek UKAS accreditation,” said Mr Wilkinson.

The initial focus will be on the following product sectors: cladding/roofing/decking/flooring, non-load bearing infill panels, light steel frames and modular units.

Companies interested in the potential scheme should contact:
