Marino\Ware has announced it is now certified IBC 2006 compliant in the new SSMA Certification Program.

The Steel Stud Manufacturers Association Code Compliance Certification program kicked off July 1 at steel framing manufacturing plants across America. Initiated over one year ago and approved by SSMA members in October, the program officially began marking code-compliant certified products in July.

Based on random inspections by a third party inspection agency, Architectural Testing Inc., the certification program requires all SSMA manufacturing facilities to pass initial and periodic inspections before they are permitted to label or advertise product as being certified. Participation in the program will become mandatory for all SSMA members.
