April 21, 2011

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. - The Air Movement and Control Association International Inc. (AMCA International) has revised its publication 11-03, to Certified Ratings Program Operating Manual - AMCA 11-03 (R2008) (Rev.1/11). The 2011 revisions specify units of measurement for catalogs, proper check test comparisons, and additional CRP-M details.

The purpose of the AMCA International Certified Ratings Program (CRP) is to provide the buyer, user, and specifier assurance that the manufacturer’s published performance ratings of air system components are reliable and accurate, and to provide these parties with information on how the product was tested, what appurtenances were included, and other pertinent information so that they may be able to select an air system component that will provide the performance required.

AMCA 11-03 (R2008) (Rev.1/11) provides a procedure for verification of the manufacturer’s performance ratings on a regular schedule by check testing of the certified product line in the AMCA International Laboratory.

AMCA 11-03 (R2008) (Rev. 1/11) is to be used in conjunction with companion documents as applicable, such as AMCA publications 211, 212, 311, 511, 611, 1011 and all known applicable CRP documents currently in use, and is the governance for the AMCA International CRP rating program.
