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.
