Who says they don't listen or they deny almost every response? I just got the email last night that...

Accepted. BSR/RESNET Standard 301-201X will be modified to require testing of envelope leakage and air distribution system leakage for Confirmed Ratings. The definition of a confirmed rating will be revised as follows.

“Confirmed Rating – A Rating Type accomplished using the actual data gathered from an on-site audit inspection and, if required, performance testing of the physical building and its installed systems and equipment including, at a minimum, air distributions system testing and envelope leakage testing.”

Got mine Also!  Thank God!

Agreed & I think it probably was the shear number of us going "come on man"

One interesting thing is I also brought up that projected rating numbers should use the worst case number a builder could get to pass the program or code requirements that applied, but they were mum on that - I guess I get to shoot an email to them

I hope you had a great time at the RESNET conference & safe travels
