Updates below for COVID-19 and CMEC scheduled events !!!!!
Learn more about the CMEC Accreditation laboratory inspection process, as well as the general criteria your lab will need to meet in order to be eligible for accreditation. The procedure manual is available below as a download.
CMEC requires each laboratory to monitor the temperature of all testing ovens within the laboratory. Download the file below to read more.
CMEC requires all measuring and test equipment having a significant effect on the accuracy and validity or the test results shall be calibrated by a calibration agency accredited to ISO/IEC 17025.
When you complete the accreditation process, there are a variety of ways you can display your accreditation status. First, we will provide you with a certificate that displays the tests you are accredited for. We will also add your laboratory to a database, allowing customers to search for you based on the accreditations that you have gained.
CMEC will also grant you permission to use the CMEC Accreditation logo in reports, stationery, publications and other forms of media where you may want to highlight your accreditation. On certain documents, you may need to distinguish between tests that you are accredited for and those that are not.
Along with our logo, you may add the CMEC Accreditation Symbol to your website which will provide you with an easy way to let competitors, customers and your own staff know that you are proud of your accreditation status.
Our construction materials testing laboratory is accredited through the CMEC Accreditation Program and formally recognized as having the necessary quality management system in place to conduct tests in line with the standards and guidelines specified by AASHTO R18—the “Recommended Practice for Establishing and Implementing a Quality Management System for Construction Materials Testing Laboratories.”
CMEC welcomes input from all interested parties. If you have any suggestions, recommendations or complaints, please let us know. We will respond as soon as possible.

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent emergency actions have caused many disruptions, including rescheduling of ACI Certification education and exam sessions to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. These actions may result in the expiration of ACI Certification of individuals seeking recertification before the rescheduled session takes place. As a result, ACI has been asked to extend certifications so that individuals may remain in compliance with project requirements as they await recertification testing; for a number of reasons, ACI has determined that extending certifications is not the best solution.
ACI believes the EOR/Specifier is the proper individual to review a technician’s credentials and determine if a waiver is warranted/appropriate. This can then be documented in the project files along with an explanation referencing recertification difficulties due to COVID-19 disruptions.
If needed, ACI Certification will assist in providing an explanation to any EOR/Specifier; please contact:

We are all concerned with recent events, and look forward to getting back to our regular schedule.
