<strong>NPCA Announces Plant Certification Changes for 2023</strong>

The updated NPCA Quality Control Manual for Precast Concrete Plants is available and free to download at Precast.org by members and non-members alike. This document serves as the primary guidance for the association’s plant certification program.

As the management tool and technical resource for manufacturing processes and the production of quality precast products, the manual is reviewed and updated to keep pace with advancing technologies in the precast industry.

NPCA certification is recognized by 40 states and more than 75 municipalities across the United States.

The NPCA Quality Assurance/Quality Control Committee voted in January and approved the following section changes along with editorial changes to the 2023 QC Manual.

  • Section Dry-Cast Concrete – Added requirements.
  • Section 4.6.5 Plant Requirements – Added option to requirement.
  • Under Section, NPCA Certified Plants are required to review their plant-specific QC manual. It is recommended that the plant complete this review by including a review of all critical section that apply to the products produced at the plant.
