Importance of SSPC QP5 Coatings and Linings Inspection

Corrosion of metal and concrete is a common result of reactions between substances and materials in the surrounding environment. In favorable conditions, it takes time for corrosion to occur. However, when premature corrosion or coating failure arises, you, the owner, become at risk for millions of potential losses. Our role as certified coating inspection specialists is to save and extend the life cycle of your assets.

How We Maintain Our SSPC QP5 Accreditation


SSPC evaluates our accreditation yearly to ensure our utmost compliance. Continuing education and improvement – particularly on inspection techniques, industry standards, and safety – is a critical responsibility of our coating inspectors. Furthermore, being knowledgeable and skilled in the industry is a fundamental requirement of the AMPP-SSPC-QP 5 certification program.

Note that the AMPP-SSPC QP5 certification is only given to inspection firms and not individual inspectors. Nonetheless, it still demands the skills, education, experience, and responsibilities of our coating inspectors – all of whom meet SSPC’s standards for excellence.
