Tennants UK are proud to announce that we have been accepted as new ARTSM Members and are now part of working group 2 for traffic signs – our membership certificate pdf.

ARTSM Members

The purpose of ARTSM, the Association for Road Traffic Safety and Management, is to support its members in keeping abreast of developments within the industry. Updating them about revisions to standards and certifications, ensuring that specifiers and buyers have a list of fully compliant organisations to choose from when sourcing traffic signs and associated products.

CE Marked Traffic Signs

All companies producing permanent signs for the nation’s highways must conform to BS EN 12899-1, provide CE marking of their products and operate under Construction Product Regulation conditions. Thus ensuring that all units installed are manufactured in accordance with relevant European Standards and comprise of fully tested and approved materials.

Specifiers and organisations purchasing traffic signs on behalf of UK local authorities or Highways England need assurance that the products they receive have been manufactured strictly in accordance with current standards and under suitable factory conditions.

Tennants’ ARTSM membership further reinforces the statement of our existing ISO 9001: 2015 CE Marking approval and CPR certification, that our customers – both current and future – can trust us to provide signs and associated products to the correct specification with full traceability using approved and audited processes.

Certificates & Standards

With the arrival or not of Brexit, ensuring that your traffic signs supplier is qualified and approved is now even more essential. Our membership of ARTSM allows us to monitor and report on any changes to standards that may occur in the coming months or years.
