Qatar Steel strives to provide its customers with the best steel products that meet and exceed international standards. Qatar Steel has ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited Quality Control Laboratories equipped with modern computerized testing and analytical instruments to ensure only high-quality products are delivered to the customer.
The use of stringent quality-control system qualifies Qatar Steel for several international management systems such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001, BRE BES 6001 and product certifications like CARES product certifications for rebar conforming to different international standards such as BS 4449:2005 Grade B500C, BS 4449:2005 Grade B500B, ISO 6935-2:2015 Grade B500B-R, ASTM A706 Grade 60, SS 560:2016 Grade B500B,B600B, CS2:2012 Grade 500B conforming Hong Kong Standard and Nuclear Grade Applications certified.
We make it easy to trace the Qatar Steel products by having proper traceability through heat number to each billet and rebar bundles we produce. With the heat number of a billet/rebar which is part of our material test certificate, entire history of the whole process can be traced in detail. The heat number is allocated during the production process of the EAF, which is further followed during rebar production & delivery to customers.
New format of heat number has been implemented from 1st July 2020 as mentioned below,
X – EF number (For EF3- X =3, EF4- X =4, EF5- X =5)
SSSSSS – Sequence number
This allows for complete traceability of material along with its production history. Further information about the sourcing of raw materials and life cycle of products can be found in the Responsible Sourcing and Material Consumption chapter.
