Vessel Certification – A Value Added Customer Service from Arch Wood

16 September 2015, Port Shepstone – While the wood treatment process requires vigilant attention to the operation as an entirety, the safety and compliance with regulatory authorities for treatment vessels is a top priority for Arch Wood Protection. Vessel certification is a legal requirement issued under the Pressure Equipment Regulation PER734 that can only be undertaken by a SANAS (South African National Accreditation System) certified inspector. Having recently completed such certification of the treatment plants owned by Arch Wood Protection on lease to its customers, Arch is in a position to guide their customers who own their treatment plant through the process of certification.

“We are committed to operations that ensure that the necessary steps are taken to uphold the highest safety standards at all times and are proud to be able to extend this commitment beyond the scope of our core business to include vessel certification. This is an area of expertise which allows Arch to provide a value-added service that upholds the highest principles and exacting standards of the wood preservation industry,” said Doug Sayce, General Manager of Arch Wood Protection South Africa.
