Solar Rating & Certification Joins ICC Evaluation Service
The International Code Council announced that the Solar Rating & Certification Corporation (ICC-SRCC) is joining ICC Evaluation Service, LLC (ICC-ES). With the move, all certifications presently conducted and maintained by ICC-SRCC, including the certifications for the Small Wind Certification Council (ICC-SWCC), will be coordinated within the ICC-ES framework.
ICC-ES is the U.S.’s leading evaluation service for innovative building materials, components and systems. ICC-SRCC staff will be joining the experienced ICC-ES team which consists of evaluation specialists, licensed architects and professional engineers with expertise in a range of specialized fields such as civil, structural, plumbing and mechanical engineering.
ICC-SRCC joined the ICC Family of Companies in 2014 bringing over three decades of experience in the development and implementation of national rating standards and certification programs for solar energy equipment. Since 2014, ICC-SRCC has expanded its product offerings to include certifying photovoltaic conversion of solar energy and providing small and medium wind power alternatives through ICC-SWCC. The move to ICC-ES will allow ICC-SRCC to continue to grow and provide additional value to its customers.
“Since our acquisition of ICC-SRCC, we have been focused on streamlining its operational and certification processes,” said Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. “We believe it is time to bring all ICC-SRCC programs under the control of ICC-ES to better utilize the myriad resources of ICC-ES. With this move, we aim to strengthen the renewable energy product and service offerings we have available to our members and clients.”
“With our history of excellent evaluation services, we are well positioned to take on this new area of certification services. Our customers are our priority, and we look forward to serving the evaluation needs of solar energy product manufacturers,” said ICC-ES President Shahin Moinian, P.E.
