Inconsistent quality levels have catastrophic effects across the entire supply chain – from manufacturer to final installation and eventually the road user. With National Highways’ 2023 Delivery Plan that supports their drive for safety for those who travel and work on our roads, quality has never been more critical.
Product certification, like the Highways Authorities Product Approval Scheme (HAPAS), enables certificate holders to display additional quality assurance in the highways built environment.
As National Highways want their roads to, ‘work harmoniously with the communities that live alongside them, and with the built, natural and historic environments that surround them,’ it has become more relevant, than ever before, that the civils construction supply chain is joined up in a unified drive towards quality, safety, innovation and sustainability.
In this webinar, we will be talking about the relevance and benefits of 3rd party certification like HAPAS in identifying and managing asset longevity and a more sustainable highway infrastructure.
Topics covered in the discussion:
- An understanding of 3rd party certification and why that enables innovation, risk mitigation and demonstrates product performance
- Why manufacturers choose HAPAS as their quality mark
- Where HAPAS fits within the supply chain; how it’s used, when and by whom
- How HAPAS is supporting product innovation
