New CoMET Document from ASFE Published
July 25, 2011

ASFE/The Geoprofessional Business Association (ASFE) has published Important Information about Quality Assurance, a new model advisory for firms that provide construction materials engineering and testing (CoMET) services.

ASFE’s Construction Materials Engineering and Testing Committee designed Important Information about Quality Assurance for insertion into member firms’ CoMET reports and other quality assurance (QA) deliverables. Its purpose is to help educate client representatives and others who may use the deliverable about who has and does not have a right to rely on the document, what to expect from CoMET services, and how to maximize the value of the services they receive.

The new advisory provides guidance from an industrywide, professionwide perspective. It can be used as a stand-alone document or can be printed onto the back of an ASFE-Member Firm’s daily field reports and other CoMET materials. Only ASFE-Member Firms are permitted to use the document that way, however. Others can use it to develop language of their own. For those that are not members of ASFE, the cost of the document is $50. It can be ordered from ASFE’s website,
