AMCA’s Certified Ratings Program (CRP)

The purpose of the Certified Ratings Program (CRP) is to give the buyer, specifier, and end-user of Air Movement and Control Equipment assurance that published ratings are reliable and accurate.

At the same time, the program assures manufacturers that competitive ratings are based on Standard Test Methods and Procedures, and are subject to review by AMCA International as an impartial authority.  This was developed in response to a need for validated, published product performance ratings for buyers, specifiers, and users of Air Movement and Control Devices.

AMCA International Standardized Test Methods

Over the past 50-plus years, AMCA International has developed standardized test methods to cover the products within AMCA Scope.  These standards cover performance relating to:

Standards Cover Performance Relating to:
Airflow Measurement Accuracy Air Delivery Air Leakage
Dynamic Closure Efficiency Operations
Outlet Velocity Power Pressure
Pressure Drop Psychometric RPM
Sound Power Levels Thrust Torque
Velocity Uniformity Water Penetration Wind-driven Rain

AMCA International Seal

The AMCA International Seal can only be displayed in product catalogues and equipment ONLY IF:

  • The product has been tested and rated in conformance with APPROVED AMCA Test Standards and Ratings Requirements; and
  • The product catalogue ratings MUST BE SUBMITTED to and APPROVED by AMCA International Staff.

By specifying AMCA International's Certified Ratings Seal, Specifiers, Designers, Contractors and Building Owners can be relieved of certain liability problems or legal entanglements frequently encountered in today's litigious climate.

You can specify products with confidence by requesting "Performance ratings shall bear the AMCA International Certified Ratings Program Seal".  This simple statement can greatly assist a Specifier in demonstrating that due diligence was exercised in selecting equipment and that reasonable steps were taken to ensure that performance guarantees would be met.

Note: Each certified/licensed product line is subject to continuing check-tests every 3 years in AMCA International's Laboratory or at one of AMCA International's Independent Accredited Laboratories.
