USGNN Original StoryCoalition Forms Against NFRC Component Modeling Approach

An informal group of the companies, individuals and groups that began conversation at the American Institute of Architects show two weeks ago continued its work at the AAMA meeting this week by forming a coalition to the fight the National Fenestration Rating Council's (NFRC) Component Modeling Approach (CMA). Members of the group have been frustrated by the perceived lack of response by the NFRC to their concerns about the direction and efficacy of its Component Modeling Approach.

The group began meeting informally after an USGlass editorial (CLICK HERE for related story) about the subject was met with an overwhelmingly positive response from many people with similar concerns about the CMA. Many of those who responded decided to meet at AIA and have now created a coalition to fight against the CMA in its present form.

The group is expected to release a position paper within the next two weeks.
