Certified Seismic Qualification Agencies


The building codes and/or code officials now require some equipment to be qualified and certified for seismic and wind applications. There is a difference in qualification and certification (See Certification White Paper). Manufacturers can provide seismic qualification documentation to listing services for certification. But there are agencies that provide a consultation service to help manufacturers get their equipment qualified. These agencies that do qualifications need to have a quality program associated with the qualification. ISO 9001 provides flexibility to be applied to these agencies and require a third party oversight to ensure their quality programs conform to ISO 9001.

Seismic Source International recognized the need to provide a certification program for seismic qualification agencies. There is no ISO standard similar to ISO 17020 or ISO Guide 65 that provides an accreditation program for this type of service, so a certification by an accredited Inspection Body is appropriate.
