Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC)

Attention: February 9, 2018

In the coming months, the Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC) will implement changes to its evaluation process in order to comply with requirements of the ISO/IEC 17065 standard. These changes will help us to better serve Canadian construction regulators and manufacturers.

What happens next :

  • Letters will be sent to clients outlining the changes and required actions
  • The CCMC will assess any gaps that require attention to satisfy the new process. The resulting gap analysis will be provided to you on or before July 31, 2019.
  • The new process will include surveillance requirements such as: plant inspections, periodic product testing, and/or field inspections. The details of these requirements will be provided to you in the gap analysis.
  • A new CCMC certification mark, below, will be applied on products that are CCMC-certified.
