Experts in the Field

QP-1 certification is a nationally recognized program that evaluates the practices of industrial painting contractors in key areas of business. These standards are considered the minimum level of service and quality for today’s coating industry. The program is designed to provide facility owners and specification writers a means to determine whether the painting contractor has the capability to perform surface preparation and coating application in the field on complex industrial structures.

  • To be certified by the SSPC, industrial contractors must demonstrate competence in several key areas such as management procedures, quality control, safety and environmental compliance, and technical capabilities. These areas are evaluated through a series of submittals to SSPC describing the contractor’s business operations.

  • Then an impartial, on-site audit of a representative active job site, and headquarter offices is performed to verify that programs and practices are in fact implemented and used. The QP-1 certification was originally organized to answer an industry need voiced by contractors, owners, and others who hire industrial painting contractors. At that time, the industry did not have a national standard to evaluate the primary capability of the contractor prior to a contract award.
