CTZoom Technologies Inc. has become the first Canadian vendor to provide sewer system assessment software that complies with the requirements of the Pipe Assessment Certification Program (PACP), the standard for engineers, inspection firms and municipal managers looking to compile, analyze, compare and manage CCTV inspection data. The database in CTZoom’s leading-edge CTSpec Sewer solution has been PACP-certified by the U.S.-based National Association of Sewer Services Companies (NASSCO).
With PACP protocols now integrated into CTSpec Sewer software, Canadian municipalities that deal with inspection firms using PACP-certified tools can keep a close eye on their sewer systems in a time- and cost-effective manner.
Equipped with a consistent set of analysis criteria, codes and classifications for asset breakdowns and defects used in PACP-certified systems throughout North America, the program can enable municipalities across the continent to benchmark the performance of their systems and make enlightened decisions about the management of their rehabilitation and preventive maintenance operations.
While it has been working toward PACP certification in the English-speaking markets in Canada and the United States, CTZoom has also sat on the ad hoc committee formed by the Centre for Expertise and Research on Infrastructures in Urban Areas (CERIU) to earn the right to grant PACP certification in French on a Quebec-wide basis.
