FM Conway has become the first company in the UK to receive certification for the National Highways Sector Scheme for the installation, maintenance and repair of modular paving (NHSS 30).
The accreditation comes after the contractor’s successful completion of a two-day audit from the British Standards Institution (BSI). It assures the installed quality of all types of modular paving products by providing an industry benchmark and a basis for continuous improvement, while emphasising the importance of a properly trained workforce.
The first iteration of the scheme was originally launched in January 2013 but has been subject to a full revision, which was launched in May this year. FM Conway has worked closely with the Sector Scheme Advisory Committee 30 to develop the revised scheme, and acted as a pilot for this latest version.
Andrew Cox, health and safety director at FM Conway, said “We are proud to have been at the forefront of developing this industry standard, and it is fitting that FM Conway has now become the first company to be accredited.
“This achievement reinforces our position as both a market leader in modular paving and as an early adopter of management and quality assurance systems, and we remain committed to promoting the highest standards across the industry.”
