  • This really means you need a report created by an ANSI ISO/IEC 17065 accredited product certification body, such as DrJ Engineering.
  • ANSI’s accreditation of conformity assessment bodies (CABs) reduce multiple audits and remove barriers to trade in working towards the goal of “certified once – accepted everywhere.”
  • Closer to home, DrJ is accredited to provide product evaluation reports for the Canadian market which provides manufacturers a way to indicate to code officials, designers and specifiers that products comply with consensus standards referenced in the National Building Code of Canada.
  • Manufacturers can go to jurisdictions in the U.S., Canada and IAF MLA Signatory Countries and have their products readily approved by alternative product approval authorities.
  • DrJ is unique, in that we provide professional engineering certification for all states and Canada.
    • As one example of this dual certification approach, Florida licensed PEs are approved product evaluation entities which can provide state-wide approved product evaluations per Florida law.
