AISC Certification meets IBC Special Inspection requirements.
In order to comply with the 2010 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings Chapter N Quality Control and Quality Assurance, all fabricators and erectors are required to have a Quality Control Program in their organization.
As stated in Chapter N, Quality Assurance (QA) inspections, except nondestructive testing (NDT), may be waived when the work is performed in a fabricating shop or by an erector approved by the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) to perform the work without QA. NDT of welds completed in an approved fabricator's shop may be performed by that fabricator when approved by the AHJ. When the fabricator performs the NDT, the QA agency shall review the fabricator's NDT reports.
In the most recent International Building Code (IBC) developed by the International Code Council (ICC), Chapter N of the AISC Specification meets all the Steel Special Inspection requirements as stated in Chapter 17
of the IBC.
An AISC certified fabrication shop meets all the requirements of being an approved fabricator.
Our Quality Control prevents errors from occurring instead of ONLY inspecting and correcting them after the fact.
