As of August 2011, GNB Global received certification in accordance with the CSA-A660 Standard. The certification ensures GNB’s compliance with the design and manufacturing requirements set forth in the CSA-A660 Standard.
The CSA-A660 Standard was developed at the request of the Canadian Steel Building System manufacturers to assist code enforcement officials in reviewing building permit submissions incorporating a steel building system and to help purchasers in obtaining a quality building.
The A660 Standard requires that the GNB production facilities, staff, and quality assurance systems are capable of consistently producing quality steel buildings. To ensure that these design and production standards are met and maintained, the A660 Standard requires our manufacturing facility to be certified by a certification agency, such as the Canadian Welding Bureau.
The 2005 National Building Code of Canada (NBC), Article 18.104.22.168 “Steel Building Systems” states that “Steel building systems shall be manufactured by companies certified in accordance with the requirements of CSA-A660 Certification of Manufacturers of Steel Building Systems”.
