BCF members have actively been involved with standards development for many years, and most recently contributed to BS EN 16623:2015, BS 8001:2017, the recent revision of BS EN ISO 12944 and the current work on BS 6150. BCF members are also taking the lead in reviving a key committee associated with aerospace coatings standards development, in particular in order to meet the key challenges arising from the REACH authorization of chromate pigments.
This latest achievement is the third high-profile Award win for the BCF in 2017, with the Federation presented with a double win at the Trade Association Forum earlier in the year for ‘Marketing Initiative of the Year’ and for their top honor as ‘Trade Association of the Year’.
“We are extremely pleased to have received this Award on behalf of all our members involved with standards work," BCF’s Regulatory Affairs Manager Trevor Fielding said. "We are delighted to see that BCF member participation in standards-making has been recognized by the BSI and we look forward to continuing to lead the way in standards development for the paint, coatings, inks and wall coverings sectors in the coming years, at both national and international level.”
