These objectives are achieved by the use of experienced and qualified engineers to carry out annual assessments of Companies to confirm compliance with the SpeCC Regulations, which incorporate the requirements of ISO 9001, the National Structural Concrete Specification for Building Construction, which incorporates the requirements of BS EN 13670 and, where applicable, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001.

These Regulations make reference to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001, and incorporate their requirements as applied to construction projects. Certification for the production of precast elements, in accordance with the relevant individual standards and EN 13369 common rules can also be offered for UKCA/UKNI marking of the product, in accordance with the Construction Products Regulations (CPR).
