A newly founded organization called the Certified Steel Stud Association takes a low-cost and simple approach to code compliance certification. The association is working with the ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) to set up requirements by which its members can obtain product certification from ICC-ES.
The sole purpose of CSSA is to enroll distributor-friendly manufacturer members into the certification program created and managed by ICC-ES; a subsidiary of the International Code Council, which develops the International Building Code. ICC-ES is an ANSI accredited listing agency fully complying with section 1703 of the IBC. ICC-ES is responsible for evaluating building products for building code compliance.
ICC-ES President Shahin Moinian said, “ICC-ES is pleased to be the certification agency of choice by CSSA. It is our belief that this cooperation is beneficial to the industry.”
CSSA announced three new members:
- Marino\WARE, with four manufacturing locations, and based in South Plainfield, N.J.
- CEMCO, with four manufacturing locations, and based in City of Industry, Calif.
- Telling Industries, with three manufacturing locations, and based in Cambridge, Ohio.
