In just over 3 months’ time to be involved in the steel supply chain for our National Highways there is a requirement for businesses to be certified to NHSS3B. This effectively includes the supply of steel for applications such as overhead gantries, parapets for bridges, lamp posts, crash barriers, palisade security fencing, sound barrier fencing, road signs, sheet piling for soil retaining walls, gabions, soil nails and washers, etc.
All Steels Trading is therefore delighted to announce that we have recently attained the National Highways Sector Scheme 3B (NHSS3B) certification, awarded by the UKAS accreditation body the Steel Construction Certification Scheme (SCCS (021)). Following a robust UKAS assessment, the SCCS actually became the first Certification Body to be accredited to audit the National Highways Sector Scheme 3B – stocking and distribution activities for structural steel products.
Receiving a UKAS accredited NHSS3B certificate ratifies that All Steels Trading has in place truly resilient quality management processes to supply products specifically for suppliers and contractors of Highways England. Gaining such a qualification also serves to demonstrate that All Steels Trading has totally satisfied all mandatory requirements including prior successful transition to UKAS accredited ISO 9001:2015 certification to supply structural steel products specifically for all Highways England projects.
