Program Overview

EQI, the centre of excellence in the exterior insulation and finish system industry, has developed long-term strategy revolving around several intertwining goals. EQI will play a pivotal role in the education, lobbying and marketing of its Quality Assurance Program to regulatory bodies, building officials, the design community, building owners and other relevant industry stakeholders.

The EQI Program exclusively sources materials that have been CCMC-listed and comply with CAN/ULC-S716.1 Standard for Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems – Materials. The notion of material substitutions no longer exists under the EQI Program, hence manufacturers can confidently extend a 5-year materials warranty on an EIFS system that is all their own. Importantly, manufacturers can be assured EQI-qualified EIFS contractors can install their products properly.

Modeled after ISO 9000, EQI’s Quality Assurance Program comprises nine components, all working together to provide the highest level of confidence that EIFS will be installed correctly and to the highest possible industry standards.
