Plant Inspector's Guide

The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) administers a plant certification program that ensures that the production facilities used to manufacture concrete are in compliance with industry standards and are capable of furnishing quality concrete. The inspection is conducted by a licensed professional engineer who goes through a thorough checklist. Requirements and policy for the program are established by the NRMCA Research, Engineering and Standards (RES) Committee. The Plant Inspector’s Guide instructs the inspector on the intent of requirements of the certification program. The Guide will be used as a basis to qualify inspectors to conduct plant inspections. The development of the guide is to facilitate a uniform understanding of the plant inspection requirements for both the inspector and the ready mixed concrete producer.
