If you don’t know where to start, contact us to schedule a no-cost virtual meeting to discuss your needs. Our experts can provide valuable insight to determine your readiness to apply for an evaluation report, or a listing if that seems like a better path forward.

Regardless of the direction you take or the time it takes, you’ll need fully-developed product and technical specifications – these are prerequisites to acquiring any building code conformity determination. These must include:

  • A description of the product, product catalog, cut sheets, design or sizing charts, etc.
  • Listing of building code requirements and supporting third-party compliance data
  • Limitations and exclusions where the product should not be used
  • Installation manual
  • Use and care manual, where applicable
  • Definition of the manufacturing process including sourcing, control and documenting raw materials used to manufacture the product
  • Formal quality control process for the manufacturing process and marking/identification

Quality Assurance

Having a formal quality assurance (QA) system is a precursor to product certification or listing programs, but we know from experience that creating one can be a daunting prospect. To help our clients acquire the code conformity and certifications they seek, we have created an outline for setting up a QA system. Get in touch and we’ll send you this document that outlines the critical elements for a basic quality system.
