Standard Procedure for Evaluating the Qualifications of Coating and Lining Inspection Companies



SSPC QP5SM is not an additional certification for the individual coatings and lining inspector. No, it is a program that outlines the basic quality programs necessary for a coating and lining inspection COMPANY. The certification guidelines promote consistent quality service.

On a fundamental level, QP 5 provides support to both the owner and inspection company by requiring checks and balances that ensure a high level of quality inspection regardless of which individual inspector is working the job site. This level of quality is accomplished by inspection service providers adopting quality programs that include regular maintenance training for inspectors, quality and procedural standards, corporate internal auditing of inspection records, and accountability.
