ATLANTA, GA — At the International Air Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Expo (AHR Expo), the BACnet Manufacturers Association (BMA) and the BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU) announced an international testing and listing agreement for BACnet®- compliant products.

Jim Lee, president of the BACnet Manufacturers Association, said, “We are very excited about the unification of testing programs between BMA and BIG-EU.”

The two groups will sign a memorandum of understanding that defines common testing tools, submission procedures, test procedures, and product listing policies. In addition, the two groups have agreed to use the BMA’s BACnet Testing Laboratories (BTL) mark as the common international symbol for identifying compliant products in North America and Europe.
