Qatar Steel meets or exceeds various national and international quality control standards like ASTM and BSI. These quality control standards guide laboratories and their respective chemists and engineers in the careful planning and design of experiments and test procedures.
Qatar Steel works closely with different research centers and academic institutions both within Qatar and internationally to develop new steel grades and coatings. The product development life cycle ensures that customer needs are met while assessing risks and embedding sustainability as products are developed. The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) quantifies the “cradle-to-grave” lifecycle environmental impacts of products, which can be used by architects and engineers to submit competitive bids on projects. The EPD, based on a peer-reviewed Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), helps customers achieve the credits required for building certification with LEED® and other green building rating programs like the sustainability and green buildings standards developed by GORD and the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS).
