The QSRMC Regulations incorporate all the requirements of ISO 9001 and apply them specifically to the processes involved in the design, production and supply of ready mixed concrete. The Regulations also build upon the requirements of European and National standards for concrete. In this way they provide an effective control of risk against non-conformity of the product. They are also a helpful and effective guide to producers on how to establish the systems which are required to ensure product conformity in the ready mixed concrete industry.
Following the revision of ISO 9001 in 2000 and the publication of the European standard for Concrete, EN 206-1 and the complementary National standards BS 8500-1 and BS 8500-2 new versions of the Regulations were produced to cover the transition period.
The transition period for the new standards ended in December 2003 and ISO 9001:1994 and BS 5328 have, therefore, now been withdrawn. The current edition of the QSRMC Regulations incorporates the requirements of ISO 9001:2008, EN 206-1 and BS 8500.
