Created to offer value and business intelligence to its members
In a communiqué to its members, AHRI (Air-Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute) has announced the launch of its International Regulatory Information Service (IRIS), available only to its members at: http://www.ahrinet.org/site/899/Resources/Global-Resources/IRIS.
The result of a concerted effort by the International Affairs Department at AHRI, IRIS has been created to offer value and business intelligence to its members by helping them track these regulations, the communiqué elucidated.
According to AHRI, IRIS includes the following two primary tools:
1) A list of websites that contain information on minimum energy performance standards (MEPS), labelling requirements, etc, for select countries. This tool also includes a detailed summary and status of regulations from US agencies, including the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, updated by AHRI staff.
2) A listing of notices issued by members of the World Trade Organization (WTO) for proposed new regulations or amendments to current regulations affecting the HVACR and water heating industry.
New and updated information would reportedly be added to this resource regularly, and AHRI members may subscribe to receive an email notification when new information is available. AHRI asked those who wish to subscribe to the services to go to: http://www.magnetmail.net/actions/subscription_form.cfm?user_id=AHRI&subId=1438.
In case of trouble logging in, AHRI advised its members to reset their password at http://netforum.ahrinet.org/eweb/DynamicPage.aspx?WebCode=forgotpassword&Site=AHRI or contact Freshta Rosario at firstname.lastname@example.org.
