Certification Program for Steel Stud Manufacturer in Canada, CSSBI 61-2018

What does CSSBI stands for?
The Canadian Sheet Steel Building Institute are Canada’s foremost authority on sheet steel, its products, and its many applications. They are an industry association responsible for the development and dissemination of industry standards.

What is the CSSBI 61-2018 Certification program?
Under the CSSBI Certification Program, a participating manufacturer certifies that the designated structural and non-structural cold formed steel (CFS) framing members it produces meet or exceed the ASTM International (ASTM), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) standard requirements.

The Certification Program applies to products manufactured for sale in Canada that fall within the range of standard sizes specified by the CSSBI. The Certification Program does not restrict the manufacturer from producing products for export or non-standard sizes for sale in Canada that do not comply with the Certification Program.

The Manufacturer’s Product certification is validated by the Administrator through review of the Manufacturer’s Product and production practices, appropriate testing and inspection.

CFR. ''CSSBI 61-2018 - Manufacturer Certification Requirements for Cold Formed Steel Framing Members''

How do I know if the material bought is compliant?
Individual products shall have a legible label, stencil, or embossment on the member with the following minimum information:

  1. The initials “CSSBI”;
  2. The manufacturer’s identification (2 or 3 letters);
  3. The designation steel thickness (in mils) exclusive of protective coatings; and,
  4. A reference number identifying the source coil.

Example: “CSSBI-XYZ-33 ABCD” would be a 33 mil thick Structural Product manufactured by XYZ company who is a CSSBI Manufacturer Member from a coil identified as “ABCD”.
