The 8th Edition QC Manual has a new look. The manual has been reformatted by removing Chapter 7 (Prestressed Concrete Requirements) and integrating the chapter into the rest of the manual.
Prestressed requirements are shown in BLUE. Plants enrolled in the Prestressed Certification Program are required to meet all standard precast requirements listed in black and everything in BLUE (prestressed concrete).
Architectural precast requirements are shown in RED. Plants the produce precast and architectural precast elements need to meet all standard precast requirements listed in black and everything in RED (architectural precast). By now you should have received a letter officially notifying you of the publication of the new QC Manual. If you did not receive the letter or if you have any questions about the certification, please contact Liz Todd by e-mail or call Liz at (800) 366-7731.
