CARES is the leading independent provider of assurance and certification services for reinforcing steel products used throughout the construction supply chain.
We deal with all those involved in the steel process from manufacturers through to the specifiers, purchasers and users of reinforcing steel.
As a not for profit certification body, CARES has a long track record of working closely with governments around the world to identify the quality performance and sustainability measurement of products entering the marketplace.
Our expert auditors inspect and test reinforcing steel in more than 40 international markets. Demand for CARES services has grown in line with the demand for greater clarity around product provenance required by clients engaged in constructing major private and public sector projects.
CARES is proud to be at the forefront of this work, offering expert knowledge and sophisticated measurement tools which objectively assess the whole life characteristics of these safety critical structural products.
Based at its headquarters near London for more than 30 years, CARES is governed by its Board and advised by an expert Policy Advisory Committee representing a wide cross-section of industries.
