NFRC Calls on Participants to Complete BVP Survey

As an approved Certification Body for the ENERGY STAR ® Windows program, the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) is required by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to introduce a blind verification program to the NFRC Product Certification Program.

NFRC's Board of Directors recently approved the development of NFRC's Blind Verification Program (BVP) to meet this requirement, and NFRC has been collaborating with other organizations to develop its scope. Implementing the BVP requires NFRC staff to act as consumers, blindly purchasing its participants’ fenestration products without their knowledge.

In order to design this purchasing process, NFRC requests your participation in a survey, which should take no more than 10 minutes. The survey is designed to gather information about the process of purchasing your company's products.

Access the survey here.

The survey will remain open until COB on Monday, May 9, 2011.

NFRC appreciates your participation. If you have any questions, please contact Stacy Germann or Scott Hanlon at the NFRC office: 301-589-1776.
