NRMCA Releases Version 2 of Quality Certification Program
NRMCA has released version 2 of the Quality Certification program. Based on review by the RES Committee, some of the certification criteria and submission requirements have been simplified and streamlined. To encourage participation, a substantial discount is being provided to companies that apply prior to March 31, 2017.
This certification program is a broad-based audit of the quality plan of a ready mixed concrete company. The audit involves a review of portions of the company’s Quality Management System that is developed and supported by its management; competent professionals are responsible for quality; the company has production facilities and delivery vehicles that conform to industry standards; there is a process in place for specification review, mixture development and submittal; there is a process in place for testing and evaluating ingredient materials and concrete mixtures; and the quality system supports continuous improvement.
A company attaining this certification can establish itself as a leader and preferred provider in its local market. Improved quality can lead to increased reputation with the customer, increased profitability and increased sales. NRMCA believes that the widespread use of this quality certification will improve confidence in concrete construction, support evolution to performance-based specification and innovations, and result in saving of time and cost for all industry stakeholders.
