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 Vendors
To begin the process of getting your product approved and listed on the QPL, please complete the Product Sample Checklist (may need to saved to your desktop prior to completing the document). Once you’ve completed the checklist, click the yellow submit button at the bottom of page 2. Keep in mind that test results from a third party lab are necessary prior to completing the checklist. Once paperwork is approved, Clear Roads will ask for product samples per the specifications.
The QPL product approval process can be expected to take at least 4 months.
