Becoming a Charter Member

The fabricator / steelwork contractor is required to be a member of the Environmental Sustainability Charter and maintain an environmental management scheme (EMS). The ASI provides a mentoring scheme to BS 8555 through a web-based EMS which is designed for small to medium enterprises. Fabricators with ISO 14001 can use this to fulfil their obligations but must still provide evidence through the web-based mentor and be working on an environmental improvement project.

International applicants must demonstrate that they purchase their steel from a steelmaker who is compliant with ISO 14001 and who is a member of the World Steel Association’s Climate Action Programme, then follow the normal process.

To become a charter member, please contact Margrit Colenbrander at the Australian Steel Institute at or on 02 8748 0190.
