CARES is an independent, non-profit making certification body which was established in 1983 to provide confidence to the users, purchasers and specifiers of reinforcing steels through a regime of regulation, testing and inspection. It operates for the benefit of the construction industry offering certification schemes for companies that produce materials, components or offer services to the reinforced concrete industry. Clients can specify CARES approved companies and products with confidence that they will comply with the relevant product standards and without the need for verification testing by the purchaser orcontractor.
