(Inspection) Coating Inspection- Is a Manufacturers Rep a Good Choice for Project Coating Inspections?

Every day a new specification comes out naming coating manufacturers reps as performers of Coating Inspection duties on projects. These often include multiple scheduled job site visit commitments and having the manufacturers rep sign off on inspection hold points. I know that in some instances this is due to old outdated engineer and owners’ specifications where this stipulation has been in the documents for years and no one ever bothered to remove it, even though they may agree with me on this point.

Every day a new specification comes out naming coating manufacturers reps as performers of Coating Inspection duties on projects. These often include multiple scheduled job site visit commitments and having the manufacturers rep sign off on inspection hold points. I know that in some instances this is due to old outdated engineer and owners’ specifications where this stipulation has been in the documents for years and no one ever bothered to remove it, even though they may agree with me on this point. Still many people do not fully understand the issues created when Coating manufacturers reps are tasked with being a coating inspector on a project. The intent of this paper is to share my thoughts on both the necessity of using coating inspection on all coating & lining projects, as well as providing insight into who should and who should not be engaged in performing those duties.
