Proposed Standard Revision Date: June 5, 2015
Proponent: RESNET Standard Development Committee 200
Justification: Section 188.8.131.52 requires that HERS Rater candidates and existing certified RESNET HERS Raters must pass the new RESNET Rater Simulation Practical test. Currently the standard requires that after January 1, 2016 new HERS Rater candidates must pass the test and that existing certified HERS Raters must pass the test by January 1, 2017.
Due to the need to properly educate the rating industry on this requirement and make some technical modifications to the practical simulation test, the effective date for new raters will move to July 1, 2016 and for existing raters the effective date will move to July 1, 2017.
Chapter Two RESNET Standards 184.108.40.206 The effective date for RESNET Rater Simulation Practical Test is January 1, 2016. Raters who were certified prior to January 1, 2016 shall pass the RESNET Rater Simulation Practical Test by on January 1, 2017.
