ASI congratulates Steelwork Compliance Australia (SCA) which has now been audited and awarded JAS-ANZ Accreditation on 23 August 2022, for auditing to the full scope of AS/NZS 5131 (Steelwork Fabrication & Erection) and is currently the only Certifying Body with accreditation to the entire standard.
With ASI authorising SCA as the single Certifying Body to utilise the National Structural Steelwork Compliance Scheme (NSSCS), the supply chain now has another level of surety that services provided by SCA are approved and monitored by JAS-ANZ.
IMPORTANT CHANGES TO NATIONAL CONSTRUCTION CODE 2022 (NCC)
ASI championed the revision of AS 4100 which now references AS/NZS 5131 Structural steelwork – Fabrication and Erection. As a result, AS/NZS 5131 is set to become law, with the National Construction Code (NCC) 2022 revision due to be published in October 2022.
