In efforts to continue the advancement of quality in the precast concrete pipe and products industry, the American Concrete Pipe Association offers a volunteer quality assurance program called the “Quality Cast” Plant Certification Program.
Plants earning the QCast Plant Certification must comply to the requirements set forth in the Program, as outlined in the QCast Plant Certification Manual. The Program includes inspection of materials, finished products, handling & storage procedures, product performance testing, and quality control documentation. All plants are inspected by third-party audit agency to ensure compliance with the QCast Plant Certification.
Plants may choose to receive the QCast Plant Certification across any of its products, including Storm Sewer and Culvert Pipe, Sanitary Sewer Pipe, Manholes, Box Culverts and Three-Sided Structures, and other Precast Products.
