CSSBI 61-2018 - Manufacturer Certification for Cold Formed Steel Framing Members
The Canadian Sheet Steel Building Institute (CSSBI) and its members have recently established a third-party Certification Program for cold formed steel framing members being manufactured in Canada. The program will become a requirement for CSSBI membership as a cold formed steel framing manufacturer effective 30 September 2018.
Under the new Certification Program, a participating manufacturer certifies that the designated structural and non-structural cold formed steel framing members it produces meets or exceeds the relevant ASTM International (ASTM), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) standard requirements referenced by the National Building Code.
The certified products are validated by regular third-party inspections of the manufacturer’s production and quality control practices. The Certification Program applies to products manufactured for sale in Canada that fall within the range of standard sizes specified by the CSSBI.
