For a number of years we have been working in conjunction with our suppliers to ensure that all of the products we stock meet with essential regulatory compliance. This means we have access to independently verified compliance documents for Reach, CE Marking, Explosive Precursors and EUTR along with Safety Data Sheets.

‘SIG Assured’ will always be evolving to meet with the fast pace of changing legislation and product development, but you can be sure that by working together with an industry leading independent partner we now have robust processes to track and monitor who is, and which products, are compliant. In addition to this we have an on-line storage service in place that will provide you with up to date compliance and legal information about the suppliers we work with and the diverse range of products we stock.

So whenever you see the SIG ‘shield of assurance’ stamp you can be confident that your purchase is fully traceable and supported by independent specialist appraisal.

Our Guarantee to You

  • Stock items supplied by SIG have been considered against the following legislative requirements;

          o    Declarations of Performance (DoP) / CE Marking (Conformité Européenne)

          o    Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACh)

          o    Safety Data Sheets (SDS) (e-SDS)

          o    Explosive Precursors

          o    European Timber Regulations (EUTR)

  • All products are supported by the appropriate and where relevant documentation
  • All documentation is legally compliant
  • We have independently verified our suppliers claims around the legislative regulations of the products we source from them
  • We can trace the provenance of all our products
  • We will endeavour to ensure the products we sell are fit for purpose as described by our supplier

Peace of Mind

  • CE Marking can be exploited and in some cases attached to products that have not met the requirements.  Using products that do not legally conform to standards can leave you with inferior products which are not fit for purpose and can be extremely dangerous presenting huge safety implications
  • Failure to comply with all legislative requirements could result in large fines, imprisonment or enforced trading restrictions
