The Tile Association
Formed in January 2000, The Tile Association represents the whole of the UK wall and floor
tile industry under one organisation. It has more than doubled in size since originally formed and now has more than 750 members, consisting of tiling contractors, fixers, distributors, retailers and manufacturers. Its mission is to promote professionalism and technical standards in the tiling industry, as well as provide technical support to both members and their customers
CSCS was set up in the mid-90s with the aim of improving site workers’ competence to reduce accidents and drive up on-site efficiency.
The Scheme keeps a database of those working in construction that achieve, or can demonstrate they have already attained an agreed level of occupational competence. Successful applicants are issued with a card giving them a means of identification and proof of their achievements. Cards are increasingly demanded as evidence of occupational competence by contractors, public and private clients and others, and today there are over 1.7 million cards in circulation.
