SSPC-QS 1 requires that a contractor implement and document more stringent quality control and record-keeping procedures than those included in the requirements of standards such as SSPC-QP 1, SSPC-QP 3, or others. Owners and specifiers who require a higher level of quality control for their projects may require that a contractor qualified to standards such as SSPC-QP 1, QP 3, QP 6, QP 8 or others also present evidence that its quality system meets the requirements of QS 1.
The objective of this procedure is to confirm that a contractor has the personnel, organization, qualifications, procedures, knowledge, and capability to implement the quality standards described herein.
The procedure encompasses the in-process inspection of surface preparation and application of protective coatings and linings for new construction and maintenance for industrial, commercial, and marine service.
Meeting the requirements of this procedure does not guarantee the performance of individual inspectors employed or utilized by the contractor or the contracting company itself.
