Instructions for Applying for BISSC Certification

  1. Standards Review
    Review the current edition of the ANSI/ASB/Z50.2 Standards book to ensure that a Standard exists for the equipment for which certification is being sought and that, within that Standard, the equipment conforms to its specifications.
  2. Registration
    All companies wishing to certify their equipment must be registered with BISSC.
    The Request for Registration Form must be accompanied by the registration fee which is renewable every January. ($440 in 2019)
  3. Authorization
    Companies wishing to certify their equipment must have an In-house Trained Inspector on staff who has completed the appropriate training for certification. An Application for Authorization Form for each piece of equipment to be certified must be submitted, together with the appropriate fees. Again, these fees are renewable every January. Applications for Registration and Authorization may be submitted concurrently.

    Note the following criteria for submitting Application for Authorization forms:
    • If the models of a piece of equipment to be certified differ only in size and are to be certified under a single Standard, a single form may be submitted together with a single Authorization fee.($260 in 2019)
    • If the models of a piece of equipment differ in any way other than size or are to be certified under more than one Standard, then separate application forms must be submitted together with the appropriate Authorization fees.($260 per application)
    • Multiple equipment having a different purpose (i.e., an encrusting machine versus an injector) requires separate Applications for Authorization even if such equipment is to be certified under the same Standard.
    • Multiple equipment having a single purpose (such as casters) and certified under a single Standard may be included on one application form.

  4. Submission
    Complete and return the above-mentioned forms, attaching one check to cover both the Registration fee and the appropriate Authorization fees, made payable to BISSC. Allow three to four weeks for review of the application and response.
  5. Approval
    Upon approval, a Certificate(s) of Authorization for the approved equipment will be issued, valid through the last day of the year of issuance. The applicant is now authorized to affix the BISSC symbol to the certified equipment. Symbols may be purchased through BISSC.
