Draft PDS-02, BSR/RESNET/ICC 301-2014 Addendum N-201x, Normative Appendix B, Inspection Procedures for Minimum Rated Features RESNET’s Standards are under continuous maintenance, so revisions are approved on an ongoing basis via amendment proceedings that create addenda. Proposed Addendum N has been created to amend Standard ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2014 in order to create Normative Appendix B, which establishes requirements for the inspection of minimum rated features (MRF). The requirements provided in this addendum are based on RESNET MINHERS Appendix A, “On-Site Inspection Procedures for Minimum Rated Features.” The requirements have been updated to align with the requirements and language in the pending versions of 301 and 380 and have been adapted for multi-family dwelling unit and sleeping unit energy ratings. In a separate proceeding, Proposed Addendum F has been created to amend ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2014 in order to create Normative Appendix A, which establishes requirements for the inspection and grading of insulation. The file for Addendum N (Appendix B) includes a page to inform reviewers that Addendum F (Appendix A) is also under development. Draft PDS-03 of BSR/RESNET/ICC 301-2014 Addendum F was open for public comment until September 17, 2018. In a separate proceeding, BSR/RESNET/ICC 301-201X, the five-year update to Standard ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2014 is also being developed. It will include all approved addenda to ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2014. Draft PDS-03 of the update to 301 will be out for comment within a month. In the meantime, the file for Addendum N includes relevant text from BSR/RESNET/ICC 301-201x to provide context for some elements of Appendix B, which will ultimately be included in BSR/RESNET/ICC 301-201x along with Appendix A.

Comments must include a specific proposed change to the text of the draft open for comment. Proposed added text must be underlined and text proposed to be removed must be shown using strikethrough. If not submitted in this format, the public comment may be rejected. Do not submit comments on standards other than this one that is out for public comment (i.e. MINHERS or ANSI Standard 380) If you submit public comment representing the collective interests of a group of stakeholders, you are encouraged to submit ONE public comment and identify all stakeholders in that comment. While not required, this expedites the ability of the committees to respond to commenters in a timely manner. Public comments are reviewed by committees with volunteer members, that are Raters, Providers, Software Developers and other industry and public interest stakeholders. They are not reviewed by RESNET Staff. Most amendments to RESNET standards are proposed by industry and public stakeholders not RESNET. To learn more about submitting proposed amendments CLICK HERE.
