In a performance driven construction industry, there is an increasing requirement for products and services to be formally and independently assessed. Companies investing in assessment with the SCI are getting; an industry recognised brand, proven expertise and established supporting services. Manufacturers are using product assessment as a cost effective method of differentiating their product and accessing new markets.
As specifiers increasingly look for added assurance, they can be confident that design data covered by SCI certification has been produced using appropriate procedures and that performance values quoted by manufacturers have been independently verified.
When published standards do not provide procedures for particular products or applications, SCI uses its technical expertise to develop suitable methods for calculating design values.
SCI has been a trusted, independent source of information and engineering expertise globally for over 30 years, and remains the leading, independent provider of technical expertise and disseminator of best practice to the steel construction sector.
SCI offers three schemes to suit your requirements:
