(PRWEB UK) 11 August 2013
OSC, one of the UK’s top suppliers of fasteners and wood connectors, are pleased to announce that they are fully compliant with the new EU Construction Products Regulation. These new regulations came into being on 1 July 2013 and they will have a major impact on many businesses and individuals working in the construction industry.
The new regulation sees all construction products that are covered by a harmonised European Standard and are placed onto the market after 1 July 2013 requiring to be CE marked and have an accompanying declaration of performance, if the product is intended to be sold within the European Economic Area. OSC ensured that they were ready for the new regulation coming in, replacing the European Construction Products Directive. The new regulation aims to create a unified approach to the technical assessment of construction products across Europe that all manufacturers can aspire to.
OSC has always worked hard to provide a high quality range of coach screws and wood screws and the company welcomes this new development, which will provide a greater sense of reliability to the consumer.
OSC has reacted quickly to ensure that their product range is fully in line with the new regulations and that customers can still receive the same high quality of products and advice. Anyone looking to discuss how these new regulations may impact them will be happy to know that OSC staff members are on hand to explain what changes will come about with the new regulations and to inform customers which products are best for their needs.
OSC recognise and welcome the new regulations but the company looks forward to providing their traditional sense of high quality customer service and affordable pricing as they did before.
OSC were formed in 1998 to be the sole UK distributor of the FastenMaster range of self-drilling fasteners. To this day the company is still the sole UK importer and distributor for this product range but they now provide a wide range of fastener and screw products for UK joiners, builders, electricians and other professionals. OSC are also the sole UK importer of the CAMO hidden deck fastening system while they are also the name behind the Orbix range of self-tapping screws, which have been specially designed for electricians. Anyone that is reliant on a quality screw will find that OSC has everything that they need.
