The Mastic Asphalt Council (MAC) is the trade association for the UK mastic asphalt industry. MAC represents more than 90 firms – including mastic asphalt manufacturers, the contractors responsible for its installation, and associated suppliers of equipment and services.Top quality products, design and workmanship are fundamental to the Mastic Asphalt Council.

MAC membership is only open to those manufacturers and contractors that can satisfy its stringent quality requirements. These strict membership requirements enable MAC to justifiably claim that it represents the UK’s top 70 mastic asphalt contractors, as well as the five leading manufacturers.The Mastic Asphalt Council is a non-profit making independent body. Always look for the MAC logo – only MAC members can use this mark of quality.

The Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) is dedicated to completing health and safety pre-qualification assessments to a nationally recognised and accepted threshold standard. CHAS is a founder member and past Chair of Safety Schemes in Procurement – Competence Forum or SSIP.

CHAS is established as the market leader for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK. It is a non-commercial scheme available to suppliers (those who provide goods and services) and to organisations (buyers) looking for suitably competent suppliers.

CHAS isn’t just for construction companies, it assesses health and safety for all types of suppliers, from care services to demolition contractors, designers and consultants. The aim of the scheme is to save time and resources by avoiding unnecessary duplication in the first stage of competence assessment; the CDM Core criteria.
