How the Plant Prequalification Program Works

The Plant Prequalification Advisory Committee comprised of representatives from the Municipal Engineers Association, Ministry of Transportation Ontario, Ontario Provincial Standards, Ontario Concrete Pipe Association and Concrete Precasters Association of Ontario administers the Plant Prequalification Program.

Owners of infrastructure projects that purchase precast concrete drainage products from prequalified plants, receive products that have been tested for quality through the manufacturing process and inspected upon completion. Concrete drainage products supplied from a prequalified plant comply with the requirements of the latest editions of CSA standards for concrete pipe, manholes, catchbasins, valve chambers and other precast concrete Standards including CSA A23.4, CAN/CSA A257.1, A257.2, A257.3, A257.4, ASTM C507M, and OPSS 1351. This also includes reinforced 
concrete box units (including three sided structures) that comply with the latest edition of the OPSS 1821 and the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code, CAN/CSA S6. Concrete Pressure Pipe complies with AWWA C301 or C302.

Application by any producer for a Prequalification Certificate is made through the Chair of the Plant Prequalification Advisory Committee. Applications shall cover the full range of products that the manufacturer wishes to be on the certificate covered by the standards listed above.

A third party engineer is retained to carry out an independent inspection of the applicant’s plant and Product. Samples of products are tested and the Engineer prepares a detailed report. The Engineer submits a letter to the Chair which states compliance or non-compliance with the prequalification requirements, together with a recommendation. The Chair issues the Prequalification Certificate. If the detailed inspection cannot be completed, the remaining required inspections shall be carried over to the following year(s) until all the required work can be completed. If product is produced that was not tested during the detailed inspection, sufficient product shall be set aside for testing by the engineer.

Annual intermediate inspections in the following two years shall continue and product made shall be sampled and tested as required.

The Certificate states the product to which the prequalification applies and is normally valid for 12 months after the date of issue.
Each year, plants are inspected by the Engineer who checks and tests to ascertain whether or not quality control and the standard of workmanship are being maintained at a satisfactory level. This is considered to be an intermediate inspection. Every third year, the Engineer undertakes detailed inspection and testing, and submits a report comparable to the original inspection for prequalification. A Prequalification Certificate may be cancelled at any time with respect to any product. The Manufacturer is given a limited amount of time to correct deficiencies, otherwise, the Prequalification Certificate is lost and the prequalification process shall start anew.

These prequalification requirements apply to plants supplying or from which it is proposed to supply Precast Concrete Drainage Products, pursuant to a specification requiring that such product be supplied from a plant approved by the Prequalification Committee. All such Precast Concrete Drainage Products supplied to a project shall have been manufactured in a plant which has been prequalified by the Prequalification Committee and for which the Manufacturer has a Prequalification Certificate issued by the Prequalification Committee, which is valid at the time of manufacture and delivery of the Product. Ontario Concrete Pipe Association membership is not a prerequisite for the Plant Prequalification Program.

The manufacturer shall allow the Engineer full access to their facilities and exempt the Engineer from any statements of non-disclosure that may normally be required of visitors to their facilities.
