Steel Fabrication Certification for NZ Specifiers

Steel Fabrication Certification for NZ Specifiers

The Steel Fabrication Certification (SFC) scheme introduces a mark of quality to New Zealand’s structural steel sector. It reduces the compliance risk for engineers, architects, quantity surveyors, builders, and building and infrastructure owners.

Significantly, SFC offers independent, expert certification of New Zealand fabrication companies. It provides procurers of locally fabricated structural confidence that certified fabricators have the appropriate personnel and procedures in place to consistently produce work of the required quality.

Today, SFC is transitioning to become a compulsory requirement – all Steel Construction New Zealand (SCNZ) fabricators will be certified by 2020.

What’s more, a new Fabrication and Erection (AS/NZS 5131) Standard has been published. Once adopted in New Zealand, it will provide a standards framework for the technical and quality requirements of the SFC scheme. SFC will help identify fabricators capable of meeting the requirements of this new standard.
