SMART Scaffolder and the NASC
In 2008 the NASC (National Access and Scaffolding Confederation) issued new guidance that impacted on all tube and fitting scaffold design in the UK. TG20:08 was developed in response to BS EN 12811-1:2003, which replaced the obsolete British Standard for tube and fitting scaffolding, BS 5973, providing wide-ranging advice on the construction of tube and fitting scaffolding, together with guidance for design engineers.
In 2012, having already produced the NASC interactive guide for TG20:08, CADS was invited by the NASC to tender for the rewrite of TG20. Following a successful tender we have worked closely with the NASC to produce the amended guidance for release in 2013 (TG20:13).
