WABO Steel Fabricator Registration Program

This registration program was developed to assist building officials in meeting the requirements imposed in Chapter 17 of the International Building Code (IBC) by "establishing and recognizing" a person, firm or corporation as an "Approved Fabricator." The program also aids the design community, registered WABO Special Inspection/Testing Agencies and the fabrication industry by providing a standardized process for evaluating and registering fabricators of structural steel. Work done on the premises of an "Approved Fabricator" is not subject to special inspection as required by IBC chapter 17 for such work done within the scope of the fabricators quality system manual.

This program is not intended to prevent any fabricator who is not registered with WABO to manufacture structural steel components for building construction. These fabricators, however, would be subject to special inspection at the fabrication facility. WABO's registration program is not intended to provide inspection and/or evaluation of product quality for individual projects. Neither is it intended to guarantee the quality of specific fabricated structural steel products. The use of this program in part or in its entirety is completely voluntary.
