JOSCAR is an accreditation system for the aerospace, defence and security sectors. The system was established following an initiative led by ADS Group and includes a growing number of prime contractors as registered buyers.
Established in 1939, the British Valve and Actuator Association represents the interests of over 200 British companies which are responsible for over £1billion sales each year. BVAA member companies employ more than 9,000 personnel directly in manufacturing and an equal number in support industries.
The membership is involved in more than 50 different committees whose areas of study cover a wide spectrum on the valve and actuator industry, including the setting of European and International standards, writing codes of practice, establishing industry ground rules and, most importantly, establishing a forum for members to meet with their peers.
