|ICC Evaluation Service Expands Standards Council of Canada
Scope of Accreditation to Anchor Products
ICC-ES Reports Holders of Anchor Products Can Now Obtain Recognition for Use in Canada
| ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), the experts in building product evaluation and certification, has expanded its current scope of accreditation through the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) to include evaluation of post-installed anchor products, including both mechanical and adhesive type anchors, to the provisions of the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) and CAN / CSA A23.3-14 Annex D qualification requirements of post-installed anchors.
This new SCC scope extension allows ICC-ES report holders to apply for recognition under the National Building Code of Canada and CAN / CSA A23.3-14 Annex D for anchor products that have been qualified to the requirements of ACI 355.2 and ACI 355.4.
"This is great news for anchor manufacturers seeking Canadian distribution for their anchor products," said ICC-ES Quality Systems Director David Pereg, P.E. "ICC-ES report holders will now be able to seek Canadian code recognition through our ICC-ES Building Products Listing Program. This is another example of ICC-ES continuing to deliver on its pledge to find more ways to add value to the ICC-ES listings obtained by manufacturers."
The Building Products Listing Program for the Canadian market provides manufacturers a way to indicate to code officials, designers and specifiers that products comply with consensus standards referenced in the National Building Code of Canada. Manufacturers can go to jurisdictions in both the U.S. and Canada and have their products readily approved by code officials of the two countries.
