Manufacturers are endorsing the progress ICC-ES has made over the past year in the ESR, Building Product and PMG listing programs. Initiatives and programs launched as part of a commitment to respond to ICC-ES customers’ needs to get their products swiftly into the marketplace has been well received by ICC-ES customers. That is why ICC-ES is experiencing a record year in the areas of building product evaluation, as well as Plumbing, Mechanical and Gas Product evaluation.
ICC-ES has improved its processes to expedite the issuance of Evaluation Reports, PMG and Building Product listings and has implemented a new customer relations management system to be able to provide more personal and tailored support to customers.
In addition, ICC-ES is strengthening relationships with industry resources to provide more opportunities for customers. Most recently, the Los Angeles Department of Building Safety (LADBS) expanded its acceptance of ICC-ES evaluation reports in the categories of non-structural fire life safety and structural non-seismic, or non-wind, without requiring the city’s own Research Reports (LARR). The ICC-ES PMG Listing Program and the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC) are collaborating to offer a certification program for all solar thermal product manufacturers, which will result in a PMG listing issued by ICC-ES PMG and a thermal performance rating issued by SRCC.
