2013 IVP Participation Form
Share |

As a Partner in the ENERGY STAR® program, you have made a business choice to be part of a brand that communicates the message about the energy efficiency of windows, doors, and skylights to consumers. The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) is the leading expert in the certification and testing for windows, doors, and skylights and is recognized by the EPA as a Certification Body (CB) for the ENERGY STAR program.

To ensure that ENERGY STAR products continue to perform in the marketplace as originally designed and certified, ENERGY STAR requires that all products bearing the logo be made available for independent verification testing. NFRC will therefore be implementing an Independent Verification Program (IVP) in 2013 to verify the performance ratings of ENERGY STAR qualified products.

In order to meet the requirements as a CB, NFRC is requesting each Partner to fill out and submit this form to assist in administering the IVP.

Remaining a licensed manufacturer in good standing with NFRC and compliant with NFRC 713. NFRC reserves the right to terminate your participation in the IVP upon written notice. You may also elect, at any time, to terminate your participation in the IVP on written notice. In the event of a termination of your participation in the IVP, NFRC will notify the EPA of that termination.


NFRC will be required to report to EPA the results of any unsuccessful test of your products verified under the IVP. You agree that NFRC shall have no liability or responsibility to you for any decision EPA makes with respect to your participation in the ENERGY STAR program.
