The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), the nonprofit organization that establishes objective window, door, and skylight energy-performance ratings, has an immediate opening on its American National Standards (ANS) Committee.

As an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Accredited Standards Developer (ASD), NFRC’s ANS Committee oversees any changes to its energy-rating programs for fenestration products and ensures these revisions follow the ANSI consensus process.

The ANS Committee members represent stakeholders including manufacturers, consumers, government agencies, and higher education institutions, among others. The current opening on this standing committee is for someone in the User category, which includes consumers and consumer advocacy organizations, utilities and energy service providers, architects, specifiers and design professionals, builders and construction contractors, laboratories, and similar parties with interests in fenestration issues.

Candidates interested in joining the ANS Committee must have technical knowledge of NFRC and its documents and be available for up to five hours per year for virtual committee meetings. Additionally, committee members are required to actively participate in the committee’s activities including attending NFRC meetings, voting on measures presented to the committee, and performing other duties as requested by NFRC’s Board of Directors.

For more information, check out the ANS Committee webpage here. Applications to join the committee must be submitted to Jen Padgett, programs administrator, by Friday, Feb. 19, 2021.
