A move to hasten the launch and acceptance of its Eco FT class A products across the country
Vista, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2015 -- Eco Building Products has announced its agreement with DrJ Engineering to provide certificate of code compliance. It will thus review the substantive testing and analytical data, which will form the basis for the certification.
It's important to note that DrJ is an ANSI accredited product evaluation service provider besides being a renowned engineering company. It has been known to work with companies to expedite the launch of new products in the market. According to Tom Comery, President and CEO of Eco Building products, one of the major hurdles with the company's Eco FT products (Fire Tested Class A) was being accepted by local building departments.
Talking about the move he said further, "The building codes are written in such a way as to require innovative new products like Eco's to follow the alternative materials, design and methods section of the Code. Though we can overcome this, it is a laborious, project by project approach. Aligning with DrJ will streamline and expedite these local approvals." That makes a lot of sense since DrJ has a tried and tested accreditation process.
Moreover the Mutual Recognition Agreements (MLAs) from DrJ offer worldwide recognition of certificates of conformity issued by certification bodies, which are accredited by members of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF). Kirk Grundahl, President of DrJ offered his inputs by saying, "Two companies stand behind the creation of alternative materials, designs and/or methods of construction. We are uniquely qualified through our being ISO/IEC 17065 accredited for 'Buildings' and 'Civil Engineering'."
The move is expected to be a brilliant strategy for Eco Building products as it can start breaking down barriers right from the word go. It is definitely useful for the company in the present scenario as it tries to add to its Eco FT (fire treated) Class A suite of products. By bagging this agreement, the company has ensured that it can launch its products swiftly at the right time.
