Q: How can I tell if I'm a client of HSB Global Standards - Codes Services?
A: Often, the primary contact between Codes Services and our Clients/Partners, is the Quality Assurance Manager (actual title used in your organization may differ slightly). This member of your organization should be able to confirm your company's relationship with HSB Global Standards. You may also contact the Customer Support Specialist at any one of our Regional Offices.

Q: I know I'm a Code Services client, but I don't know my contract number. How can I become a registered site user?
A: The contract number can be found on billing reports provided by Code Services to document services performed for your organization. Check with your QC Manager. Your local Code Services Authorized Inspector or Authorized Inspector Supervisor can also provide the number to you. Please note that the contract number contains 13 characters, followed by a single letter (A,I,P,H,D,F, or U). It should look something like this: GEN1234567890H.

Q: In the past, we've called your Codes and Standards group directly when we have questions regarding code issues. Can we still do this?
A: You may certainly continue to contact our Codes and Standards group by telephone. To help us ensure prompt responses to your code-related questions, we provide Specific Code Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs) in the Client Access/Tech Resources area of this site. Many of the questions fielded by our Codes and Standards staff have been previously addressed and can be found in the Code-Specific FAQs.

Q: Why do I need to provide my contract number to register as a site user?
A: Many of the resources found on the HSB Global Standards web site require a considerable investment to maintain. As part of our pledge to provide outstanding value-added service to our Clients/Partners, Code Services reserves these site features for the exclusive use of our clientele. We need your contract number to confirm that your organization has a current Code Services contract.
