Uniform Evaluation Service
No, we didn't misspell insurance. Insurance is for after the fact, when you need financial restitution after something has gone wrong.
Unlike insurance, Uniform Evaluation Services provides assurance for yourself, end users and building regulators that the code- which sets the bar for building component acceptability- has been satisfied. We ask the tough questions, and when we get answers we issue a Uniform Evaluation Report that tells the report holder and the reader that someone with the right expertise asked the right questions and got the right answers.
Our Assurance Program benefits everyone. The code official saves time by using our detailed review, freeing staff to perform other tasks. Manufacturers do not have to answer the same questions over and over again. Consumers are assured that the product has been evaluated against the building code enforced in the places they work and live.
It's a thorough process, but not onerous. See for yourself.
