Australasian Certification for Reinforcing Steel (ARCS)
Our ACRS certification is an independent, third-party product certification that our SEISMIC® Grade 300E and 500E products meet the New Zealand Reinforcing Standard ASNZ 4671:2001.
As part of our ongoing commitment to our environment Pacific Steel have worked closely with the New Zealand Green Building Council for a number of years to ensure our products are eligible to earn Greenstar points under the latest V3 standard as well as the previous standards.
In early 2016 Pacific Steel were awarded the Environmental Choice EC41-15 certification under the latest review of the certification standard. The eco-label is critical in our pathway to our products being eligible under New Zealand Green Building Council Greenstar scheme.
ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems Certification

New Zealand Made
Pacific Steel roll all our reinforcing bar, rod, coil and wire products using iron sand steel billets produced at the New Zealand Steel's mill in Glenbrook, Auckland. Previously in the manufacture of recycled steel products we held our own WSCA membership however, we now utilise New Zealand Steel's WSCA membership for all of our manufactured products.
Membership of the WSCA program contributes to our status as a responsible steel maker - which is part of the Greenstar pre-requisite for materials credits.
