WASHINGTON - The Testing, Adjusting and Balancing Bureau (TABB) received official accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

TABB runs the testing, adjusting, and balancing (TAB) certification program, which ensures that HVAC systems operate at the highest standards and with the greatest efficiency and effectiveness at every stage of an indoor environmental retrofit or to new building specification.

According to TABB, with ANSI accreditation it enhances its reputation as a leading resource for certification in the HVAC industry. Unlike other organizations whose current certification programs are ineligible for ANSI accreditation, TABB certification standards and procedures for certification are set by a policy-making body.

“Many people ask the question who certifies the certifier,” noted John Hamilton TABB COO. “TABB now has an answer - ANSI, which follows ISO standard 17024. Across the country, TABB has gained ground in getting specified as an equal to NEBB and AABC.” Hamilton concluded that ANSI accreditation gives greater recognition to TABB contractors, who now gain acceptance from engineers and specifiers as an equivalent to NEBB or AABC.
