The RESNET Board of Directors voted for RESNET to have its standards compliant with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards.  The board also included funding in the RESNET 2010 budget for professional services to assist the RESNET Standards Committee in this process.

RESNET has entered into a professional services contract with the Building Professionals, Inc. to carry out this assistance.  The principal of the company is Laverne Dalgleish.  Laverne is well versed on the ANSI and ISO process.  He also serves on a number of committees with the International Standards Organization (ISO).

The process that the Building Professionals, Inc. will pursue in this effort will include:

  • Review goals and objectives of the project with the RESNET Standards Committee
  • Determine with the RESNET Standards Committee the vision for RESNET with regards the long term  goals for RESNET standards
  • Download all ANSI requirements on the development of American National Standards and review
  • Determine the ANSI requirements with regards to RESNETs goals
  • Provide a draft RESNET Application for ANSI SDO Status
  • Provide a first draft of RESNET Policies and Procedures Manual Regarding Standards Development and Maintenance
