Proposed Substantive Changes to MINHERS Chapter 2, Section 205.2.2 Rating Field Inspector (RFI)

RESNET IS ACCEPTING COMMENTS ON PROPOSED SUBSTANTIVE CHANGES TO MINHERS CHAPTER 2, SECTION 205.2.2 RATING FIELD INSPECTOR (RFI)

RESNET no longer has technical support of JobWerks so the technical complexity and cost of managing the JobWerks platforms will outweigh the benefit of using this tool. The current language of the Standard requires use of the tool for Rating Field Inspector Candidates certification so to remedy the situation RESNET developed a simpler and less expensive graded field evaluation. The MINHERS Chapter 2, section 205 requirements must be amended to remove the requirement for JobWerks and authorize the RESNET graded field evaluation.

This amendment is of critical time importance to keep from having a lapse in the certifying of Rating Field Inspectors. The RESNET Standards Management Board authorized its implementation as an Interim Addendum. Interim addenda are effective until replaced by a Final Addendum that has been finalized through the full consensus and public comment process.

Public comments on Proposed Substantive Changes to MINHERS Chapter 2, Section 205.2.2 Rating Field Inspector (RFI) will be accepted for 30 days from posting on RESNET’s website.
