AISC Certification Requirement

AISC Certification Requirement

(OP)
Does anyone ever look at the requirement that a steel shop be AISC certified as being a closed spec, which is illegal on public projects? I also want to point out that the fee structure for fabricators actually means that a steel fabricator owes a cut of each ton of steel they fabricate to AISC.

RE: AISC Certification Requirement

None of the government projects I've worked on have viewed it that way. In fact, they have usually asked me to required AISC certification. It's a level of quality, not a sole-source. At least that's been my experience.

RE: AISC Certification Requirement

(OP)
I understand the intent and agree the level of quality should be maintained but the certification and cut of the project AISC takes seems to be a legal issue.

RE: AISC Certification Requirement

I've required AISC certification on many government projects. State, Federal, DoD, DoS. No problems ever.
