0 CONSTRUCTION QUALITY ASSURANCE/CONTROL MANUAL

20.1 INTRODUCTION This Construction Quality Assurance/Control Manual has been developed to serve as a guide in facilitating the Contractors development of their own QC program for this project. The procedures do not attempt to be instructional in nature. They do not describe how something is to be inspected or tested. They do, however, define what is to be inspected and tested, who is to inspect and test, and how the program is to be executed. Where reference is made to the obligations of a Contractor, they shall equally apply to sub-contractors, approved testing agencies or authorities and the like employed by the Contractor. The following procedures have been divided into disciplines so that the applicable procedures for the contract can be included.
