Newsletter Concrete Sustainability Council - April 2020

Dear ,

COVID-19 (corona virus) has taken control of much of our private and business life. We very much hope that you are families are all healthy and that you get along well during these challenging times.


Exceptional situations require exceptional measures, and this is why the CSC recently implemented the following temporary measures valid until July 31, 2020:

     - An exceptional grace period for expiring certificates permits, upon request, postponing recertification of existing certificates by three month.

     - Provisional certifications with a validity period of three month can be obtained solely based on the evidence uploaded in the CSC Toolbox and confirmed by the auditor.


Further details regarding these exceptional measures are explained on the CSC homepage and in a dedicated section within this newsletter (see below).


With this, we hope to serve the needs of our clients and to contribute to minimizing any risk for their personal health.


Stay healthy!
