Plant Certification

Why Plant Certification?

Plant Certification enables Members of Concrete Sask to provide assurance to their customers that their equipment is in good operating condition and has the capability of producing quality concrete.

The Association offers the “Concrete Production Facilities Certification Program” prepared under the direction of the Concrete Sask Technical Committee. This document is based on the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) plant certification check list, and the plant certification programs by the Provincial Concrete Associations across Canada as well as the current Canadian Standards Association (CSA) requirements for plant, equipment, and materials.

This document, detailing the requirements for plant certification, provides producers with the means of obtaining a Certificate for display which indicates that the plant, because it has the proper equipment, in good operating condition, has the capability of producing quality concrete.

When applying for Plant Certification, the Applicant acknowledges and agrees that multiple factors apply to the manufacturing of good quality Concrete. Concrete Sask provides no assurance that a plant that is certified in accordance with the Program will deliver good quality Concrete. The Certificate is intended only to evidence that certain manufacturing plant capabilities exist.
