SPF Quality Assurance ProgramKey Components
For every inspection conducted, inspection reports will be produced, and based on quantifiable data. There are mandatory inspections for jobs in which the amount of material sprayed exceeds 9,999 kg. Design professionals or building owners can require a greater number of inspections than what is outlined in the SPF Quality Assurance Program.
Documentation and Reporting
Detailed daily work sheets providing a paper trail of testing results, site conditions, installers, etc. are required to be completed, with a copy being sent to the SPF Quality Assurance Program’s office. Inspection reports are sent to the contractor, the supplier, and the design professional.
Contractors are required to meet the strict standards of the SPF Quality Assurance Program. They shall have at least one certified installer on each job site at all times. The license must be renewed yearly, and may be revoked or suspended at any time.
Installers are required to be certified to apply the product. They are issued a photo identification which is renewed yearly, and may be revoked or suspended at any time.
A warranty is provided by the contractor, the SPF supplier, and a third party warranty is also provided by the Energy Conservation Contractors Warranty Corporation (CWC).
Contractors, suppliers, installers, and inspectors are required to sign agreements stating their requirements.
A central database is used to track each certified installer, registered apprentice, and licensed contractor. Training and inspection results are also tracked along with the daily work sheets.
A committee is present to establish policy, hear appeals, initiate changes, and oversee the operation of the Quality Assurance Program
