Who we are
CARES is the leading not-for-profit independent international reinforcing steels product certification body delivering confidence in the performance, provenance and quality of safety-critical reinforcement products entering the construction supply chain. With a proud track record of providing assurance to users, designers, consultants and specifiers spanning four decades, CARES’ data-led inspection and certification services provide valuable transparency into the provenance and sustainability characteristics of reinforcing steels moving across complex supply chains.
Clients and specifiers can specify CARES-approved reinforcement suppliers with confidence that the product will comply with the relevant reinforcement standard without the need for costly, on-site testing.
Compliance with regulatory systems and product standards is inbuilt with CARES approval – and backed up by a seamless digital solution, the CARES Cloud App, providing instant authentication of a supplier’s CARES certification and traceability to the origin of the reinforcing steel.
