The AISC Quality Management Systems (QMS) Certification sets the quality standard for the structural steel industry and is the most widely recognized national quality certification program for that industry. Companies that are AISC QMS Certified have been through a rigorous initial evaluation and are subject to annual reviews. The QMS Certification requires a comprehensive administrative review, documentation audit, and on-site audit to evaluate a company’s quality management system rather than just specific product inspection. The program focuses on the entire process of fabrication and erection – which will prevent errors from occurring instead of ONLY inspecting and correcting them after the fact. AISC’s Certification Programs confirm to the design community and construction industry that a company has the personnel, organization, experience, procedures, knowledge, equipment and commitment to meet the AISC Standards for a specific certification category.
Quality Management Company (QMC) is the exclusive auditing body for the American Institute of Steel Construction’s programs, and QMC auditors verify that your QMS is in place, implemented and effective.
