RMCPCS Certification Process:

What is RMC Plant Certification scheme?

In order to establish a credible, independent third party voluntary certification system to assure quality in operations and processes of RMC Plants, the Quality Council of India, India’s apex quality facilitation body, set up by the Central Govt. has designed and launched the “RMC Plant Certification Scheme” in May 2013.

The Scheme has been launched based on a request from the Ready Mixed Concrete Manufacturer’ Association (RMCMA), a non-profit industry organization of Ready Mix Concrete (RMC) producers in India, who realized the requirement of institutionalizing neutral verification system to ensure quality in ready mix concrete manufacturing owing to the tremendous demand in concrete in the last decade. The Scheme has been developed under an MoU signed between both the organizations in December 2011. This joint initiative was further reinforced by joining hands with the Building Materials & Technology Promotion Council (BMTPC) under Ministry of Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation, Government of India, as the secretariat for the work related to the certification criteria.

This third party voluntary scheme is targeted towards large number of RMC facilities spread over the country providing them an opportunity for marketing a product which is an outcome of a process validated through a process of third party certification. This showcases their intent to serve their customers better not only by focusing on quality of the concrete but other aspects as stipulated in the Scheme.

The scheme is a robust mechanism that ensures that any RMC unit that applies for a certificate has actually internalized best practices in their plant in accordance with the BMTPC’s Criteria for Production Control of Ready Mix Concrete which is specified in the Scheme. The important aspects that are assessed during the assessment include plant and equipment, concrete mix design, control on quality of concrete ingredients, control and maintenance of process, production and testing facilities and adequate emphasize on competence of key personnel manning the process.
