SCX renews Cyber Essentials Plus and JOSCAR accreditations

15th June 2022

As a provider of engineering solutions to the aerospace, nuclear and defence industries, SCX Special Projects prides itself on the highest standards of quality, security, and safety.

SCX has recently renewed its accreditations to both the Cyber Essentials Plus standard for information security, and the JOSCAR certification for supply chain assurance in the aerospace, defence, and security industries.

Cyber Essentials Plus is an audited assessment of a business’s information security standards. SCX is proud to have been re-accredited with Cyber Essentials Plus, giving independent assurance that our IT systems and security policies are properly managed and protected.

JOSCAR – the Joint Supply Chain Accreditation Register – is an approved supplier scheme that gives aerospace, defence, and security companies the confidence that a supplier is ‘fit for business’ in sectors where supply chains come under the greatest scrutiny.

The kinds of buyers that procure services via JOSCAR include the UK Ministry of Defence, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems, Babcock and QinetiQ.

A successful JOSCAR accreditation requires a business to demonstrate strong operational practices across a range of disciplines: quality, health & safety, IT & physical security, diversity & inclusion, business continuity, supply chain management and more.

These latest accreditations build on the three ISO standards and RoSPA Gold award that SCX achieved in summer 2021.

Nigel Montgomery, Operations Director at SCX says:

“We design and build mechanical handling solutions for customers in very demanding industries such as nuclear and defence, and for public spaces where safety is paramount. This dictates that we continue to set high standards for all our business operations, from initial sales engagement through all the necessary design phases, procurement, manufacturing, assembly, testing and commissioning, and of course our customers wouldn’t expect anything less.

“So successfully securing these highly regarded accreditations, following independent assessments of our processes and procedures, is further proof of our commitment to a culture of continuous improvement in all areas of our business management systems”.
