NASC is the national trade body for access and scaffolding in the UK.
Institute / association
NASC is the national trade body for access and scaffolding in the UK – established 1945 and now serving a family of 240+ leading contracting firms, scaffolding suppliers and manufacturers.
The Confederation produces a wide range of industry-recognised safety & technical guidance for scaffolding contractors, their operatives and their clients – accepted as the industry standard by HSE, Build UK, CITB & principal contractors alike.
NASC members are strictly audited – ensuring the highest possible standards are met, confirming to our NASC Criteria, Code of Conduct and the Code of Practice for scaffolding products. It’s these high standards of our members’ access solutions that are recognised by construction industry leaders, who continue to stipulate NASC-only companies for access and scaffolding.
