Registration requirements
 

The SpeCC scheme offers two tiers of certification within each distinct sector detailed below:

  • Sector 1 – Construction of buildings and civil engineering
  • Sector 2 – Construction of substructures and basements
  • Sector 3 – Construction of slip-form concrete barriers
  • Sector 4 – Piling works
  • Sector 5 – Construction of concrete floors

Tier 2 certification:

UKAS accredited BS EN ISO 9001 certification, coupled with SpeCC Technical Regulations certification (as described below):

The requirements of the SpeCC Technical Regulations Issue 1:2010 are applied, incorporating specific technical and practical aspects associated with specialist concrete construction detailed within the NSCS Edition 4 & BS EN 13670:2009, supplemented by:

  • Quality (UKAS accredited certification to BS EN ISO 9001)
  • Environmental systems following the principles of BS EN ISO 14001
  • Health & safety systems following the principles of BS OHSAS 18001
  • Technical capability & deliverability
  • Financial gearing
  • Training

Construction of buildings and civil engineering is certified to conform to the SpeCC Technical Regulations, with the associated quality management system further certified to conform to the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2008. The SpeCC regulations require construction to be compliant with the requirements of the NSCS Edition 4 & BS EN 13670:2009 and/or the requirements of the specifier. Conformity certificates are awarded on the basis of an assessment of conformity control systems and process control covering all aspects of BS EN ISO 9001, the site based requirements of BS EN ISO 14001 and BS OHSAS 18001, and the additional SpeCC specific requirements detailed above.

UKAS accredited certification is available directly from SpeCC. Alternatively, in order to meet the management system certification requirements of the SpeCC Tier 2 regulations, third party UKAS accredited certification may be supplied.

Note - SpeCC's UKAS accreditation status in relation to BS EN ISO 14001 is currently awaiting formal approval. In relation to BS OHSAS 18001, SpeCC is required to undertake 2 'UKAS' witnessed audits and we are therefore seeking volunteers for this process.

Transition from SpeCC Technical Regulations Issue 4: 2007

The transition from the previous Technical Regulations (Issue 4:2007) will take place during 2011, resulting in the all contractors being registered under either ‘Tier 2’ or ‘Tier 1’.

The current contractor listing will remain in place until 31 March 2012.
