PSSA founder member Zaun has been accepted as a member of the National Specialist Contractors Council (NSCC).
The NSCC boasts 32 different trade associations as members – and collectively represents 7,000 specialist contractors.
NSCC has contacts in all the key Government departments and is a major influence on issues such as payment, pre-qualification, training and sustainability. It is perhaps best known for its Fair Payment Campaign, which has changed industry expectations regarding payment practices, with 30 day payment terms and no retention recognised as the best practice standard.
The NSCC also played an important role in the development of the Construction 2025 industrial strategy. It is represented on a number of external bodies, including the CITB, Construction Leadership Council, Industrial Strategy Delivery Group, CSCS (as a co-owner) and the Strategic Forum for Construction.
