ICC-ES listing reports are readily accepted by Canadian construction authorities and help accelerate speed to market
Brea, CA – ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) has issued the first listing report to CSA S136, North American Specification for the design of cold-formed steel structural members, to New Millenium Building Systems. CSA S136 is referenced in the 2020 and 2015 National Building Code of Canada (NBC) and is a harmonized Standard intended for use in Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
New Millenium is a provider of structural steel joist, joist girder and decks for commercial steel construction projects, and has multiple facilities across North America that serve markets in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The New Millenium roof deck panels, form deck panels and composite deck panels, evaluated to CSA S136 and the NBC, are cold-formed from steel sheets used as floor and roof deck to support vertical loads, and as components of horizontal diaphragms and composite floor assemblies.
Obtaining a Canadian listing report with ICC-ES helps manufacturers get their products to market quickly by providing assurance their products are code and standard compliant for Canadian builders. All building and plumbing products are included in ICC-ES’s scope of accreditation with the Standards Council of Canada (SCC).
“ICC-ES can publish listing reports to numerous Canadian building and plumbing standards including CSA S136. CSA S136 is based on AISI S100 which is referenced by AC43 [Steel Deck Roof and Floor Systems] and AC46 [Cold-formed steel framing members]. If a report holder has an ICC-ES ESR issued to AC43 or AC46, obtaining an ICC-ES ESL issued to CSA S136 should be a straightforward and simple process,” said Will Utsey, ICC-ES Regional VP of Engineering. “We look forward to supporting clients of such products in their market expansion into Canada.”
“New Millennium appreciates the support of the ICC-ES engineers and staff who diligently reviewed our design procedures and other supporting documentation for our steel deck products in preparation of this report, demonstrating compliance with CSA S136 and the National Building Code of Canada,” said New Millennium Building Systems Marketing and Business Development Manager, Joseph K. Voigt, P.E.
