British Coatings Federation wins Industry Leadership Award 2017
As described in the BSI’s citation, ‘This award recognises exceptional support for standards-making by a trade association or professional body or an individual company. The recipient will have demonstrated how they have supported and enabled committee members to actively participate in standards-making’.
Meeting key challenges
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 authorisation of chromate pigments.
Third Award win for BCF
This latest achievement is the third 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 honour as ‘Trade Association of the Year’. Commenting on the BSI award, BCF’s Regulatory Affairs Manager Trevor Fielding said “We are pleased to have received this Award on behalf of all our members involved with standards work.”
