Iron and Steel Institute
In 1869 a Society, The Iron and Steel Institute was created. The society was a means by which members could discuss various topics related to the production and working of iron and steel. All kinds of matters would be discussed apart from those connected to wages and trade regulations.
To better protect the interests of the institution and its members it was suggested it should receive the Royal Charter. Along with the Charter incorporated in 1899 a set of rules and regulations were also created.
