The procedure describes a method for evaluating the qualifications of field painting contracting firms with less than 6 months industrial painting experience. The procedure defines minimum requirements for this qualification.

The procedure determines if a painting contractor has the personnel, organization, qualifications, procedures, and knowledge to perform surface preparation and coating application of the required quality for complex steel structures under the conditions and restrictions specified by the owner.

The procedure encompasses assessment of resources to perform field application of coatings in the industrial market. Specialty applications, such as lining materials, bituminous products, galvanizing, metallizing, etc., are not covered by the requirements of this standard procedure.

Meeting the requirements of this special qualification program is not equivalent to SSPC certification (e.g., QP 1 or QP 2). Firms meeting requirements of this procedure have not been observed by a qualified auditor performing coating operations in the field on a complex steel structure project.

This procedure qualifies contractors only for contracts that are specifically designated by owners or their representatives as being open to bids from contractors who meet the requirements described below.
