What is Product MasterSpec?
Product MasterSpec is a program that allows manufacturers to license sections
from the MasterSpec libraries. ARCOM’s team of professional specifiers work
closely with representatives from the manufacturer to determine where their
specification fits and provides guidelines to ensure the product meets
ARCOM’s high standards. Once the specification is complete an announcement
is made in ARCOM’s electronic newsletter, Spec Press, and it is made
available to MasterSpec users and the manufacturer.

comparisons, drawing coordination and specification checklists.
