who CARES wins

CARES is the reinforcing steel authority of the UK, and is partnering with the PTIA to improve the quality of construction standards in Australia with an independent certification scheme covering safety-critical post-tensioning installation and related products that are part of the construction supply chain.

CARES is an independent, not-for-profit certification body that promotes confidence in reinforcing steel through a regime of regulation, testing, inspection and certification.
