ACRS Quality Compliance

The ACRS Quality Compliance Certification scheme is designed to assure the quality of materials specified and delivered to site, irrespective of origin, and ensures Australia’s construction standards are not eroded through the supply of potentially non-complying materials. ACRS is your assurance of quality compliance. Liberty OneSteel Reinforcing was one of the first rebar and mesh processors in Australia to receive Quality Compliance Certification from ACRS.


Why ACRS Certificates Replace Mill Certificates

Some specifiers ask for certificates for reinforcing bar from their REO supplier and request details of heat or batch identification and traceability. With the advent of third party certification provided by the Australian Certification Authority for Reinforcing Steels (ACRS), this is no longer necessary. ACRS certificate gives a level of quality assurance for compliance to AS/NZS 4671 for steel manufacture and processing over and above that provided by a Steel Mill certificate.

ACRS Warning Brouchure

The Australian Certification Authority for Reinforcing Steels is an independent third party assessment body which checks reinforcing for Standards compliance. ACRS certification independently confirms the Standards compliance of the materials you are buying. Every house builder and concretor must comply with the Building Code of Australia and failing to comply could have severe consequences. The easiest way to check this is ask to see your supplier’s ACRS certificate.
