Why Specify Certified? top of page

The APA Plant Certification Program was developed twenty years ago to provide Architects with added assurance that their chosen architectural precast facility had in place an independently monitored quality control system. Plant Certification is mandatory for APA Producer Members who undergo two unannounced inspection per year. Since the program’s inception, architects, engineers and governmental agencies nationwide have welcomed it as a standard of quality precast concrete production and as an equivalent to PCI certification. We are proud to report that the American Institute of Architects’ Master Spec®, Speclink®, 4-Specs® contain APA Certification and the program is included in the Unified Facility Guide Specification used by all the armed forces and NASA.  

All of the hundreds of private and governmental organizations recognizing the APA Certification were especially impressed with the qualifications of its inspectors. Each of APA's primary inspectors must be a registered professional engineer and have at least ten years experience in precast concrete production, a qualification which other precast certification programs do not require.

For your guarantee of production capabilities, specify an APA Certified Plant.

APA Certification top of page

Obtaining and maintaining APA Certification is no small feat – Each plant undergoes two unannounced inspections per year which span an entire casting cycle and cover well over one hundred check points. Each check point is graded as pass/fail – APA does not recognize partial credit. In fact, a plant will immediately fail if it cannot pass each of more than twenty mandatory items which encompass highly critical areas of personnel, record keeping and shop drawings. A plant which falls below the standards set by the APA Certification Program has its Certificate of Certification withdrawn immediately. There is no grace period; therefore, a plant cannot continue to function as a certified plant. The modifications to its quality control procedures must be accomplished and verified by another inspection before certification status is re-instated.

The APA also requires each Certified Plant to hold Level I and II Quality Control Personnel designations which cover precast and architectural precast products, whereas other certification program designations are limited exclusively to prestressed concrete. In addition, the APA Plant Certification Program is the only inspection program that requires the person who mixes the concrete to pass a rigorous competency examination to achieve the designation of Certified Central Mix Batch Plant Operator.
The Architectural Precast Association Certification Program is administered by: CCILogo
