As the chart below illustrates, participation in the QCP continued to grow in 2019, and notably compared with 2017. The program reflected an increase of nine (9) licensed companies over 2018.
Many firms are maintaining their QCP License to take advantage of being pre-qualified to meet specifications that require a QCP project certificate. The 2019 Year-End statistics confirmed that 595 firms were QCP-licensed compared with 586 in 2018 and 539 in 2017. Project registrations were a bit down in 2019 but projects inspected increased.
Note: The chart reflects activity through Dec. 31, 2019.
Remember, certification orders must be made at least two weeks prior to the commencement of fabrication to allow for scheduling of compliance inspections during the fabrication phase of the work.
- Anyone can register a project (owner, design professional, general contractor, woodworker).
- Only a QCP-licensed company may certify a project.
- Project certification fees are five hundred dollars ($500) or one half of a percent, ½%, of the woodwork contract; whichever is greater.
- For complete information on certifying a project, read Section 4 of the QCP Policies.
