IAS Accreditation

As of July 2015, The VMC Group has successfully gained accreditation by the International Code Council’s (ICC) International Accreditation Service (IAS) as a Product Certification Agency PCA-127, Third-Party Certification Body.  The VMC Group has been named the first and only product certifying agency for special seismic certification of non-structural building components and their mounting configurations. IAS accredits product certification agencies under ISO/IEC Guide 65 (ISO/IEC 17065). 

For product certification organizations like The VMC Group, IAS accreditation demonstrates to the marketplace that they have been thoroughly evaluated, operate under best practices and are under continual monitoring by an internationally recognized, trusted and widely accepted accreditation body. 

“With our recent expansion of IBCapproval.com and acquiring 51% of Dynamic Certification Laboratories (DCL), we found it of critical importance to verify the accuracy and proficiency of our testing and measurement operations,” states John Wilson, Jr., Chief Executive Officer of The VMC Group.  ”This distinguished accreditation is the culmination of our vision for seismic certification which began 10 years ago. It differentiates us from others as we have and will continue to lead the industry. Being a PCA displays our continuous commitment to meeting the highest standards of practice for seismic certification and is consistent with our forward-thinking approach as a total solutions provider.”
