General Information


Plant and Truck Certification Documents

  • The inspection of the production facility should be documented on the Plant Certification Checklist.
    The NRMCA Plant Certification Checklist should be used solely for the purpose of requesting certification of production facilities through NRMCA. The current version is the Twelfth Revision effective March 2015. As of July 2017, inspectors should use the NRMCA Plant Certification Electronic Checklist version 07.17.17 for inspection and for requesting certification of production facilities through NRMCA. This document is provided to inspectors approved to perform inspections for the NRMCA certification program. The printed version of the Twelfth Revision is being accepted only through October 31, 2017. If you are an NRMCA approved inspector and need the current copy of the Checklist then please contact Karen Bean by email or at 1-888-846-7622, x1168.

  • The inspection of the delivery fleet should be documented on the Delivery Fleet Inspection Form.
    The detailed requirements for delivery fleet are addressed in Section 5 of the Checklist. This inspection can be conducted by approved inspectors or by assigned company personnel. Section 5 and the fleet inspection form can be obtained in the section on Certification of Delivery Vehicles.

  • Plant and Truck Payment Form
    This document includes the payment schedule and can be used to provide payment amount and information when requesting certification for the production facilities and delivery fleet.

  • Plant Inspector Guide
    This document covers a detailed discussion of the requirements addressed in the Plant Certification Checklist and is intended to provide additional guidance to inspectors and concrete producers seeking certification for their production facilities. The checklist language is included for context of the discussion of each requirement. For persons interested in learning more about the plant certification program and the general industry standards governing ready mixed concrete production facilities, this document is a useful reference.
