BPI Updates Standards Process

October 15, 2007

MALTA, N.Y. - The Building Performance Institute (BPI) has initiated a professional approach to the development and upkeep of the BPI Standards. Its board of directors has approved changes to the standards development process that will follow ISO/ANSI procedures and allow BPI to seek ISO/ANSI accreditation as a standards development organization.

While the current standards development process has served BPI since its inception, the new process will be more formally structured. A Standards Technical Committee will be appointed to review and take action on proposals and comments from the general public, with updates to the standards made annually. If interested in serving on the Standards Technical Committee, participants must turn in their applications by Nov. 30.
