Ratings Committee Moves Trail Audit Ballot Forward to BOD

The Ratings Committee has moved to forward to the Board of Directors the NFRC 705 Documentation Trail Audit Ballot.

This ballot seeks to modify the NFRC 705: Component Modeling Approach-Product Certification Program” document by revising the language to cover the situation where the information needed for the documentation audit is not available at the time the label certificate is issued.

Typically, the information needed for the documentation audit is not usually available until the project has been constructed, which can sometimes be many months after the label certificate is created.

The proposed language requires that the audit documentation needs to be submitted within 30 days after the documentation becomes available and that if the documentation is not available within one year, that a different label certificate is selected for the audit.

The motion passed by unanimous voice vote and will be considered by NFRC’s Board of Directors tomorrow.
