One for All?

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011

I recently heard that some owners change a contract by replacing an “SSPC-certified contractor” requirement in the original contract with a requirement for an individual who has certification as a coatings inspector. What is the reasoning behind replacing a certified firm with a certified individual—regardless of the certifying body? And what do you think of this practice?

We here in Germany have been working like this for years. Regardless of the job,only qualified (Certified) persons are allowed to do Inspection work. Yes, it saves money in the end.But as long as the Inspector does his job right,he or she won´t have any trouble.(The Boss´s like people who protect thier investments !)
