The NASC Code of Practice was originally introduced in 2007 for system scaffolds. The scope has since been expanded to incorporate EN39 tube, EN74-1 couplers, BS2482 timber board and aluminium beams. TG20 compliant unit transoms and high tensile 3.2mm tube will be added to the list of audited products in 2016.

The rationale behind the NASC CoP audit was to introduce a level of compliance that supplier members should adhere to, with the audit covering Quality Systems & Procedures, Product Testing, Raw Material & Components and Process Control. Where appropriate relevant BS, EN & ISO Standards are utilised.

Audits are carried out by a third party consultancy company QSI Ltd at member company UK sites and in the majority of cases at manufacturing sites worldwide. Compliant products are listed on the NASC website. The audit is specific to new product at point of entry to the UK.
