Summary: This webinar provides the authority having jurisdiction (AHJs) with guidance to help with decision-making when it comes to approving products and equipment. Technical data sheets often include a myriad of certification marks and references to a variety of test methods or equivalencies, some of which may be different than the AHJ is accustomed to seeing.
This webinar will provide the viewer with:
- Brief overview on the historic impacts, legal and code requirements for products to be evaluated by an independent testing facility
- The background on how to verify a testing/approval agency becomes qualified to evaluate various products
- Strategies for AHJs to verify a product or certification mark is acceptable for a given use and alternative approaches for new products where a test method is not yet available
