Why does ICC-SRCC conduct inspections?

ICC-SRCC operates accredited third-party certification programs. This means that it confirms that the product submitted for certification meets the requirements of the program at the time of application, and as long as the certification is continued. Periodic ICC-SRCC inspections confirm that the products produced continue to meet the requirements of the standards and program, and that quality processes are in place to continue to produce compliant products. Many regulatory bodies that specify ICC-SRCC certification require follow-up inspections. But they also provide value to consumers and listees. Inspections provide consumers with confidence that the products produced continue to perform as well and as safely as those originally tested or evaluated for the ICC-SRCC certification. Inspections provide listees with confidence that ICC-SRCC’s policies for certification are being enforced for all, and that there is a “level playing field.”
