Admin history
  • The British Steel Producers' Conference (also known as Number 2 Conference) was formed as a full member of the British Iron and Steel Federation (BISF) in 1945, and was made up of constituent product associations. Previously these associations had enjoyed full membership of the Federation having become affiliated to it soon after it was established in 1934. The BSPC remained in being following the dissolution of the BISF in 1967 and the nationalisation of the steel industry but was dissolved in March 1970.
