GUARANTEE AND INSPECTION SERVICE (GIS) PROGRAM

AWMAC, through its Chapters, will issue a two (2) year Certificate of Guarantee for their manufacturer members on projects that have passed the final GIS inspection if they have fulfilled the following requirements:

  1. membership is in good standing;
  2. at least one person in the firm has successfully completed the Manufacturer Standards Questionnaire (MSQ); and
  3. Temperature and Humidity report has been submitted, including readings that they and their installer(s) have taken each day, starting on the day the architectural woodwork leaves the facility and each day that the architectural woodwork employees and installers are on site.

If the architectural woodwork is stored in a place other than on site, temperature and humidity is to be recorded daily.

Prior to applying for the AWMAC guarantee for a job tendered after July 1, 2017, ONE OWNER OR MANAGER IN YOUR COMPANY WILL NEED TO HAVE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED THE MSQ
