Ontario, Calif. (Sept. 11, 2014) — IAPMO’s Uniform Evaluation Service (UES) is pleased to announce that California-based ASC Profiles, LLC (ASC Profiles), and the AEP Span and ASC Building Products divisions thereof, was granted UES Evaluation Report ER-309 to reference the 2012 and 2009 editions of the International Building Code® (IBC) and the International Residential Code® (IRC). ER-309 states that the Single Skin Steel Roof and Wall Panels with Concealed Fasteners listed in the report satisfy the applicable code requirements. This allows for the specification of ASC Profiles’ listed products to architects, contractors, specifiers, and designers, and approval of installations by code officials. It also provides code officials with a concise summary of the products’ attributes and documentation of code compliance.
Products recognized with an IAPMO UES Evaluation Report have successfully undergone evaluation based on applicable requirements within the Uniform Family of Codes and the International Family of Codes, as well as codes published by other entities. UES staff thoroughly examined ASC Profiles’ product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods, and other factors to determine their products are code compliant.
“ASC Profiles has been extremely pleased working with IAPMO Uniform Evaluation Service on our ER-309 steel roof and wall report,” said Brian M. Gough, senior product development engineer. “IAPMO UES continues to exceed our expectations on many fronts, including service and attention to detail, thus earning our loyalty. We highly recommend them.”
The UES program is built upon IAPMO’s more than 70 years of experience in evaluating products for code compliance. Accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the program operates under ISO/IEC Guide 65, “General Requirements for Bodies Operating Product Certification Systems.”
UES Director Richard Beck, PE, CBO, MCP, explains why Uniform Evaluation Reports are so valuable: “ASC Profiles can now reference its ER-309 for their AEP Span and ASC Building Products divisions’ Single Skin Steel Roof and Wall Panels with Concealed Fasteners to ensure that code officials quickly have the information required for their decision on approval. Our program also stands out because of stellar customer service and the utilization of in-house staff along with the technical expertise of professional engineering firms, who are leaders in each area of recognition.”
IAPMO’s UES offers a full range of recognition opportunities, including recognition for the applicable national model codes, as well as Florida, California, and various other state codes. The UES program lowers the cost and increases the value to code officials of these reports by combining all of these recognitions in one concise report prepared by an internationally recognized product certification body.
