AISC and SSPC have developed a joint certification standard for shop application of protective coatings. The standard, “Certification Standard for Shop Application of Complex Protective Coating Systems,” aka AISC 420-10/SSPC-QP 3, describes requirements for certification of firms that apply complex painting systems.
The new standard is the culmination of several years of work by a joint committee of coatings and steel industry professionals representing both organizations. It’s available now for free download on AISC’s website at www.aisc.org/JointPaintStandard and SSPC’s website at www.sspc.org/market-place, for inclusion into project specifications and contract documents.
