It is Andrews Fasteners’ standard practice to supply customers a Declaration of Conformity and Test Certificates for purchased products (in general this is only on products grade 8.8 and above).
These documents may not be supplied for every customer we serve, as we know, that some of them may not need them, or need them at a later time.
We operate an automatic Test Certificates list where, for a customer who requests it with us, test certificates are sent automatically by our staff in the Quality Department every morning or through the working day once goods have been invoiced.Read more
