CISC has recently published the 3rd edition of its Steel Bridge Certification Standard. The English and French versions can be downloaded via these links:

This Standard is used by bridge Fabricators who wish to have their operations CISC Certified. It is designed to assess the Fabricator’s Quality System and provide a level of assurance that the company performing the fabrication has processes and personnel in place to better enable it to conform to the contractual and regulatory requirements. The Standard addresses the special processes and requirements of steel fabrication for highway and railroad bridge structures.

CSA S6 Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code now requires bridge Fabricators to have a bridge-specific audited and certified quality management system. CISC Bridge Certification is recognized by CSA S6-14 as meeting this requirement.
