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.
