Advisory Committee CAS Information


The periodic 5-year review and revision of The SSPC/NACE Joint Applicator Certification Standard (SSPC-ACS 1/NACE No. 13) "Industrial Coating and Lining Application Specialist Qualification and Certification," is underway. This standard provides criteria for the education, training, experience, knowledge, and skills required by an Application Specialist to prepare and apply protective coatings to steel and concrete surfaces of complex industrial structures.  This standard may be used for certification of Application Specialists for other substrates or conditions, as considered appropriate by facility owners, contractors, or certifying agencies. It is the basis for SSPC's CAS program.

Draft revisions to this standard are being prepared by a joint task group comprised of SSPC and NACE members.  The proposed revisions will be balloted to consensus committees within NACE and SSPC. If you are interested in joining the SSPC committee reviewing this standard, please contact Aimée Beggs, SSPC Standards Development Specialist at 412-288-6042 or email beggs@sspc.org.

For additional questions about CAS and the information found in the links below, please contact Joe Berish  (berish@sspc.org).
