The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) announced its board of directors approved postponing the requirement for NFRC participants to display the full Certified Products Directory (CPD) number on the NFRC temporary label. According to the announcement, this delay is to offer participants additional time to prepare their labeling processes for the labeling requirement and the recent board request for staff to develop an improved public search display of NFRC ratings.

As the NFRC notes in the recent bulletin “the revised display has affected the launching of the new voluntary Identical Rating Values (IRV) expansion process within the CPD. Staff is currently investigating a new date to implement the IRV process, which will be announced upon the board’s approval.”

Displaying the full CPD number on the temporary label will be required three months after the IRV process is implemented, no sooner than October 1, 2012, whichever date is later, according to the NFRC.
