PCI’s Plant Certification Program ensures that the plant has developed and documented an in-depth, in-house quality systems based on time-tested, national industry standards.  Once a year, the plant undergoes two unannounced audits, in accordance with the standards published in PCI’s quality-control manuals.  Mid-States PCI Plant Certification Categories include: A1, B3, B3-IL, C3 and C3A.

PCI’s Certified Erector program complements the Plant Certification program.  It calls for precast components to be erected to the exacting standards expected by owners, developers, architects and contractors.  Each crew of a PCI Certified Erector is audited twice each year.  Mid-States PCI Erector Certification Category is S2.

The PCI Certification program was developed and is updated by a team representing all industry stakeholders.  It is backed by PCI’s network of committees, research and development, education, codes and standard initiatives, and integrated programs and relations throughout the industry, according to PCI.
