Introducing the Master Audit Certificate of Compliance (MACC) Program
UL's Qualified Firestop Contractor Program (UL QFCP) has been in the industry for over 10 years now. As part of continued improvement, FCIA and UL partnered to develop the MACC - the Master Audit Certificate of Compliance. This new program is an optional additional service UL can provide for UL QFCP's and their Building Owner and Manager Partners.
This new certificate brings great value to the building owner that they can use with insurance companies, AHJ's and others. The new MACC program - available worldwide - includes a job site audit of the UL QFCP's Management System and a certificate for the firestop contractor to provide to the Building Owner and/or Manager that the contractor was found to be in compliance. The MACC even references the need for the Building Owner to comply with the International Fire Code requirement for annual visual inspection of fire-resistance, including firestopping. And, the MACC is available only to UL QFCP's.
Watch for the UL Announcement and details in the upcoming issue of Life Safety Digest.
