Labeling Subcommittee Passes Two Motions

The Labeling Subcommittee, chaired by John McFee of the Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA), took action on two motions this afternoon.

Before it did so, the subcommittee heard reports from task groups. Charlie Curcija of CARLI, Inc., reported that the CMA Label Task Group doesn’t have any further work. “We developed a label, we finished a label, it is being used,” he said. McFee said that even though the task group has been suspended, any action items that come through in the future will be directed to it.

Mike Cienian of Hunter Douglas, chair of the Attachment Label Task Group, reported on its activities, and read a statement from Co-Chair Thomas Morrissey. The task group’s first official conference call will be held in mid-December, and Morrissey, also of Hunter Douglas, has drafted a proposed scope statement that Cienian shared with the subcommittee.

The subcommittee then passed a motion that metric labeling requirements be allowed to two (2) decimal places and that the NFRC 700 be revised to allow the requirements. The motion also directs the working group to develop a recommendation as soon as possible and to bring that recommendation directly to the Board for final action.

Business then turned to the NFRC 700-2010 Applied Films Ballot. After all negative comments were withdrawn, the subcommittee passed a motion to move the ballot to the Ratings Committee for approval and implementation upon publication.
