A certificate of material compliance is a paper document that confirms that the material you ordered conforms to the specifications of the material. You can request a certificate of material compliance. For example, you might want to request a certificate when significant problems might occur for you if the material does not conform to specs. The certificate adds an additional cost.

You can allow or disallow substitution of a different (but similar) material. For example, you might choose to allow substitution for a non-critical bracket but you will likely want to choose to disallow substitution where safety is a concern.
To control material substitution permission:
- Check Allow Substitution if you are flexible on the material selection. This can result in earlier delivery and minimize the chance of any delay.
- Uncheck Allow Substitution if you are not flexible on material.
