Specifying Certification is a Critical Part of The National Building Code to Ensure Building Products and Systems are Manufactured According to the Highest and Most Stringent Industry Standards

The Canadian Precast Concrete Quality Assurance (CPCQA) Certification Program ensures that architects, engineers, specifiers, developers/owners and construction professionals will be assured of high-quality precast concrete building products. CPCQA Certification raises the bar on risk mitigation. It provides assurance of quality production and performance of precast products and systems, which is crucial not only for successful project outcomes but to also maintain the highest quality standard and commitment to resiliency and public safety.

The CPCQA Certification Program is committed to delivering safe and cost-effective building and infrastructure products to support Canada’s growing infrastructure demands.
