A new white paper from the Glenview, Ill.-based Metal Construction Association addresses how architects and designers can ensure that construction products meet established performance and safety standards. The one-page "Does Your Delivered Building Material Actually Meet Code Requirements?" paper is available as a free PDF on the MCA website. The paper describes the three most common approaches for ensuring that products meet all requirements: test reports, specific test listing/labeling reports, and model building code listing/labeling reports. The white paper was written by members of the MCA's Metal Composite Material Fabricator Council and includes a chart to simplify the three approaches discussed. A complete list and description of MCA's technical materials, including this white paper, are available at www.metalconstruction.org/pubs. Most documents are downloadable free from the site.
