Australasian Certification Authority for Reinforcing and Structural Steels
When you specify BlueScope steel you can be confident that you get the quality you have specified, and not potentially non-compliant materials that put you at risk.
To assure specifiers and customers that our XLERPLATE® steel meets or exceeds AS/NZS 3678, ACRS has independently assessed BlueScope Steel to have the capability to manufacture to Australian Standard AS/NZS 3678 and verified that it consistently does so
What is ACRS?
The Australasian Certification Authority for Reinforcing and Structural Steels (“ACRS”) provides independent, expert, industry-based accreditation, certifying manufacturers and suppliers of reinforcing, prestressing and structural steels to Australian/New Zealand Standards.
ACRS was formed by industry in 2000, using an internationally recognised model for steel certification established in the UK almost 30 years ago. ACRS is structured around the requirements of the International Standard for bodies operating product certification systems, ISO/Guide 65, published as AS/NZS 3843, and its successor Standard, ISO/IEC 17065.
ACRS currently certifies over 150 manufacturing locations, in 15 countries around the world, and has undertaken more than 500 technical conformity assessments to AS/NZ steel Standards.

BlueScope Steel ACRS certification - The key benefits to you
- ACRS has independently assessed BlueScope Steel to have the capability to manufacture to Australian Standard AS/NZS 3678 and verified that it consistently does so
- Mitigates risk and protects your reputation. You can be confident that the material you specify will deliver the properties outlined under AS/NZS 3678 - properties you are assuming when designing for critical applications; a basic prerequisite to mitigate failure in service
- It enables your procurement choices to be made on a compliance basis and not simply on the cost of an “equivalent” product
