The addendum establishes new criteria for disciplinary actions to be taken for Quality Assurance Designees who are not in compliance with the HERS requirements. It was developed to implement the RESNET Board of Directors policy which states, “If the Quality Assurance Designees are found to not properly comply with RESNET’s procedures they are subject to discipline by RESNET up to and including de‐certification as a Quality Assurance Designee.“

The draft addendum, comment form, and all comments submitted online are posted at Draft PDS-01 of proposed Addendum 37, QAD Disciplinary Actions. After the comment period, the RESNET Standard Development Committee 900 will consider and document each of the comments submitted and make appropriate changes. Substantive changes will be submitted for public comment in a second draft of the addendum.

Public comments will be accepted through November 22, 2020.


Draft PDS-02 MINHERS Addendum 50

Proposed Addendum 50 amends the RESNET Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating Standards (MINHERS) Chapter 2 to add criteria for a new certification category, the HERS Modeler. This new certification category was authorized by the RESNET Board of Directors with the intent of improving consistency of modeling homes for HERS ratings. Certification will require training of persons who conduct the modeling and analysis of home energy performance using accredited HERS Software Tools and demonstration of proficiency with the specific software used by the modeler.
