2013 AISC Certification Standard for Structural Steel Erectors Available as a Free Download
September 16, 2013 from American Institute of Steel Construction
(Chicago, IL) - The new AISC standard for structural steel erector certification is available for free downloading on the AISC web site at www.aisc.org/specifications (under Certification Standards at the bottom of the web page). Formally titled AISC 206-13, AISC Certification Program for Structural Steel Erectors—Standard for Structural Steel Erectors—2013, the standard outlines the requirements for a structural steel erector's quality management system.
The new standard is the culmination of several years of work by the AISC Certification Standards Committee and a special subcommittee created to draft the standard. The standard is modeled after existing AISC certification standards. “The erector standard was written with significant input from erectors,” notes Ted Sheppard, chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee on the Erector Standard. “We spent a great deal of time developing requirements that make good firms even better.”
The AISC Certification program expects to replace the current checklist-based erector certification program with a standards-based program. “The application of quality management system principles to structural steel erection is a natural extension of AISC's move towards quality management system standards,” adds Jacques Cattan, AISC vice president.
