Understanding and mitigating risk from your business is a key consideration if you are involved in building, construction, manufacturing, and mining applications. Partnering with a supplier who can add reliability with a certified quality management system will help mitigate risk and build stability into your business operations.
We reduce risk through our AS/NZS ISO 9001 quality management system accreditation – providing assurance for your business. We understand the importance of material traceability and can provide test certificates to match all our steel and aluminium products, providing peace of mind and consistent high-quality. This removes the hassle and ensures your steel complies to the necessary standards to ensure your products are fit for purpose.
The importance of product certification is now more critical than ever. Tracing products to that represented on “Test Certificates” is a vital step in the process which is usually stated as a “Heat number” related to the batch of bulk metal used to manufacture the product. The heat number or some other unique identifying method needs to visible on or with the product to complete the traceability process.
Test certificates will confirm that the chemical analysis and mechanical property test results of the material comply with the stated standard along with other necessary data such as the steel making process and a commitment from the manufacturer that the product conformance is to the standard. Most Australian Steel standards also require that the material is tested in a laboratory independent to the manufacturing division.
If you require any further information on the quality assurance of the steel and aluminium products you use, please contact your local SER® consultant. We aim to work with our customers to supply fit for purpose certified products.
