BPI Approved for ANSI Accreditation
John Manz, chair of BPI’s Standards Technical Committee (STC), said, “BPI’s accreditation by ANSI will strengthen the credentialing process that BPI currently administers. In light of the proposed Home Star legislation and need for national standards, ANSI accreditation will help ensure that consistency is applied throughout the credentialing process and ensure conformance with requirements throughout the industry.”
Manz added, “BPI’s intention is to not only meet, but exceed the expectations of the home performance industry by improving its standards and seeking the highest quality in home performance work.”
ANSI facilitates the development of American National Standards by accrediting the procedures of standards developing organizations. These groups work cooperatively to develop voluntary national consensus standards. Accreditation by ANSI signifies that the procedures used by the standards body in connection with the development of American National Standards meet its essential requirements for openness, balance, consensus, and due process.
ANSI fosters the U.S. standardization system by accrediting the procedures of standard-setting organizations and subsequently approving individual documents as American National Standards.
