AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF STEEL CONSTRUCTION ACCREDITATION SCHEME. SECOND NATIONAL STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING CONFERENCE, ADELAIDE, 3-5 OCTOBER 1990; PREPRINTS OF PAPERS

This paper reports on the development of the Australian Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Accreditation Scheme. This Scheme will initially grade Australian Fabricator Companies and then maintain the thus acquired Company's Accreditation through regular audits. AISC Accreditation will be available to AISC member and non-member fabricators for a fee which will be discounted to AISC members. The Scheme will accredit the fabricator in respect to three areas: 1) Size (capacity to execute works, i.e., manhours/tonnage per week in respect to shop floor labour as well as support resources), 2) Technical Ability (Quality Assurance level, Standards compliance, Equipment level, Track record) and 3) Safety (formal grading to a Safe Working Practice system). The point score system will assign points for partial attainment of QA and Safety with a support statement on the actual grade met, if any (e.g., AS2990/b). For the covering entry of the conference see IRRD 831067. (TRRL)
