SIG is investing in renewed focus on compliance and governance, appointing a Compliance Director and growing the specialist team which will manage and oversee issues of compliance through the supply chain.
Steve Marr, formerly Procurement Director at SIG, has taken up the role of Compliance Director, managing an internal team of eleven compliance specialists.
Under a new management team since 2020, the company is focusing on providing specialist product solutions. Doing so puts considerable onus on SIG staff to support procurement and installation decisions. It is therefore an absolute priority to ensure that they are in turn supported with the right level of accountability and governance to manage risk.
This function within SIG UK builds on work already carried out as part of SIG Assured, which focuses on ensuring that products supplied by SIG are legal and compliant to national UK standards.
The compliance team is taking this further, including aspects of sustainability (notably Environmental Product Declarations) and also working with the new Code for Construction Product Information.
Andy Williamson, Commercial Director of SIG, sees the new team as a natural part of the organisation’s evolution. He said: “The construction industry needed to change; at SIG we are looking to do our part by ensuring we’re acting as a responsible supplier, sourcing and distributing products that are compliant, safe and appropriate.“
This focus on compliance represents a significant investment for SIG and is one manifestation of the new direction for the organisation being driven by the management team.
