Benefits of Building Product Certification

Regulatory Requirement

Building code, local jurisdiction, or industry requirements may specify an obligation, by the manufacturer, to certify a particular product or system. It is often required of those products whose assembly cannot be validated in the field.

Product Modification

Manufacturers maintain a connection with the certification agency throughout a product’s lifespan and quality control standards may require only certain components to be re-tested in the event of a change to the product.

Product Differentiation

Certified products, when compared side-by-side with similar products or systems, are differentiated based on quality, acceptance, and perception.

Product Quality Verification

The certifying body plays an active role in the monitoring of a product or systems quality program ranging from verification of materials to in-process and final product quality testing, thus mitigating the risk of product disparity.

AHJ Assistance

Certification marks indicate a known independent third party certification body has tested to appropriate standards and ensures the validity of a product throughout its lifespan streamlining the process of AHJ acceptance.

Standards Update Notices

Our team of expert’s reviews updates to standards and notifies manufacturers of the necessity to retest or other changes that may be required to maintain compliance.

Product Import/Export
