SprayFoam had a first.In accordance with ISO 17024, the certification process needs to be audited each year. This year, the audit was conducted on the delivery of both the written exams and the field exams. Improvements were made to the field exam delivery process this year, which drastically increased the amount of field exams that could be conducted. At the completion of the audit today, there were no major non-conformances, no minor non-conformances and no opportunities for improvement, basically a perfect score! These results reflect the hard work and dedication of all the people involved in the PCP process. A huge thanks to all those who helped achieve this.
