What is SaltAS?
SaltAS is an assurance scheme which demonstrates to specifiers and users that their salt supplies meet all relevant quality standards and conform to their tender requirements.
What are the benefits of SaltAS?
Including SaltAS certification as a requirement in purchase and tender documentation is of huge benefit to Local Authorities, Highways Agency Contractors and other users. It reduces their requirement to provide more detailed specification and the need to carry out quality tests on their salt supplies – that becomes the responsibility of the salt supplier.
Why is SaltAS important to salt hauliers, contractors and storage facilities operators?
As SaltAS certification becomes a primary requirement for salt supply, SaltAS approval recognises quality systems, practices and disciplines and identifies participants as an integral part of the salt supply chain. To avoid duplication, certification under existing recognised industry standards counts towards SaltAS certification.
