Australian Technical Infrastructure Committee Scheme 10

The scheme is based on ATIC Scheme 10 - Requirements for bodies certifying manufacturers of structural steel products. The requirements were developed by the Australian Technical Infrastructure Committee (ATIC), a technical group under the umbrella of the Australasian Procurement and Construction Council (APCC). APCC is the peak council of departments responsible for procurement, construction and asset management policy for the Australian, State and Territory governments and the New Zealand Government. Papua New Guinea is an associate member.

ATIC is progressively producing a suite of standard technical specifications (ATIC-SPEC) for construction materials which operate in parallel with the existing Water Services Specification (WS-SPEC). ATIC Scheme 10 contains three main sections:

  • Section 1 Requirements for bodies certifying manufacturers of structural steel products
  • Section 2 Requirements for manufacturers of certified structural steel
  • Section 3 Requirements for certified structural steel products to
    • AS/NZS 1163 cold formed structural steel hollow sections
    • AS/NZS 3678 structural steel – hot rolled plates, floor plates and slabs
    • AS/NZS 3679.1 structural steel, Part 1: Hot-rolled bars and sections
    • AS/NZS 3679.2 structural steel, Part 2: Welded I sections

Applicant CABs will need to comply with Section 1 of ATIC Scheme 10 - Requirements for bodies certifying manufacturers of structural steel products.

As this is a product scheme, applicants also need to comply with ISO/IEC 17065:2012 – Conformity assessment - Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes and services.

Note: suppliers to be certified under this scheme are also required to demonstrate compliance with ISO 9001. Applicant CABs that wish to offer certification to ISO 9001 will also need to comply with ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015 – Conformity Assessment – Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems - Part 1: Requirements.


  • Enables manufacturers to demonstrate that their structural steel products meet relevant industry and regulatory requirements.
  • Procurement policies and practices which embrace ATIC Scheme 10 will ensure the necessary product and production qualities to achieve an acceptable level of risk at the right price.
