“We offer this service to allow manufacturers to bring their products to market quickly with the same focus on public safety and a rigorous review of each product that all ICC-ES evaluation reports receive,” said ICC-ES President, Shahin Moinian, P.E.
ICC-ES’ Expedited Service meets manufacturers market entry demands. Expedited Service reports are designated as priority projects and include the same thorough technical evaluation in a less time with one main point of contact.
“In this very competitive market, it was important to us to have an ICC-ES evaluation report for our Verdura Retaining Wall System as quickly as possible,” said Darien Osborne, PE, Senior Project Engineer, Soil Retention Products, Inc. “The ICC-ES engineer we worked with was efficient, technically knowledgeable of our product and completed our new report within three months of applying for the expedited service. Having an ICC-ES evaluation report in such a short amount of time has allowed us to quickly market our product and acquire new customers.”
