Qualified Products List

Due to the administrative restructuring of the Pacific Northwest Snowfighters (PNS) organization, Clear Roads has assumed responsibility of the Qualified Products List. The product testing and administration of the QPL will remain essentially the same along with a few process improvements.


The mission of the Clear Roads QPL is to “strive to serve the traveling public by evaluating and establishing specifications for products used in winter maintenance that emphasize safety, environmental preservation, infrastructure protection, cost-effectiveness and performance.”

Guidance for Bidders

Vendors interested in submitting products for inclusion on the Qualified Products List (QPL) need to first have the products tested by an independent laboratory. See the product sample checklist and testing protocols below for guidance on the information to include in the product submittal. Product Sample Checklist for Bidders
