The Certified Steel Stud Association announced today that all members have achieved CSSA Code Compliance Certification. The CSSA worked closely with the ICC Evaluation Service to develop an industry leading code compliance program, and ICC-ES is the administrator of the CSSA Code Compliance Program.
Starting immediately, all certified facilities will be placing the CSSA/ICC-ES Certification label on all ViperStud and Structural Stud and Track. A public list of certified facilities is maintained on www.certifiedsteelstud.com. A list of certified facilities is also maintained in ICC-ES ESR-2620 and ESR-3016.
