Once a company is FM 4991 Approved, the process does not end there. Annual follow-up audits of the Specialty Firestop Installation Contractor company’s home office and a jobsite(s) will be conducted by an FM Approvals representative. Additional audits may be required. To begin the process, complete the FM Approved Products-Specification-Tested Revision Request Form and submit it to FM Approvals.
Additionally, the DRI must earn at least six (6) CEU’s or forty-eight (48) Learning Units (LUs) every three (3) years PLUS pass a written re-examination.
If the DRI HAS NOT accumulated at least six (6) CEUs or forty-eight (48) LUs within this timeframe, the DRI will need to take the full examination.
If the DRI earns at least nine (9) CEUs or seventy-two (72) LUs during the three (3) year period, the re-exam requirement will be waived.
