Certification Program


SSMA developed its Code Compliance Certification Program as a means for member manufacturers to certify that structural and non-structural cold-formed steel framing they produce complies with IBC 2009 code requirements.

Structural and non-structural cold-formed steel framing certification is independently validated by Architectural Testing.  The validation process includes a minimum of two unannounced manufacturing facility audits per year that include random selection and independent testing of certified cold-formed steel framing products.

Manufacturing facilities that satisfy the requirements for certification are authorized to certify structural and non-structural cold-formed steel framing members that they produce.  The list of certified manufacturing facilities is updated as changes occur, so the list is always current.

Look for the label.  The SSMA Certification Label, prominently displayed on bundles of certified stud and track material, certifies that the material meets or exceeds building code requirements.
