The CRP continued its steady growth this year. As of June 30,
there was a total of 3,690 product lines certified, compared with
3,500 at the end of the last fiscal year. This shows a growth of 5.4
percent over the last year. The total number of companies with
certified products is 270, which is a 12 percent gain since last
year. The louver listing program also showed steady growth. The
number of louvers listed reached 76, up from 26. And seven louver

product lines procured their wind-driven-sand certification - and
there are many more of these certifications in the pipeline.
AMCA's CRP department is continuing to improve in-house
processes. Staff members are now posting the catalog checklists
for air movement and control products on the AMCA website for
members, and they are modifying the CRP application forms to
auto-populate fields in the database.

AMCA Publication 11-16
The main CRP document was revised this past year. Changes
in this revision to AMCA Publication 11 includes an expanded
purpose, an updated definitions section, a simplified violations table and new rules regarding DBAs.

standard will rely on the calculation methods in AMCA Standard
207. In anticipation of the completion of AMCA Standard 208,
the AMCA Publication 211 Committee will be working on
requirements needed to add FEI to the CRP documents.

ANSI/AMCA Standards 207 and 208
AMCA Standard 207, Fan System Efficiency and Fan System
Input Power Calculation, was completed and approved in the
last quarter. A committee is currently working on a new standard: AMCA Standard 208, Calculation of the Fan Energy
Index (FEI). Since FEI is a wire-to-air efficiency metric, this

Fall 2017

AMCA Standard 210 Software
The AMCA-Standard-210-based software used in the AMCA
lab is now available to AMCA-accredited laboratories. Test
reports generated in XML will drastically reduce the time
spent checking catalog data.
AMCA Publication 211
Changes are being made to AMCA Publication 211 to allow
certification of single-room air handlers and axial impellers.
Included are the reporting requirements, as well as specific
rating statements and catalog requirements.
Large Diameter Ceiling Fan
The DOE proposed to test all ceiling fans with blade spans
less than or equal to seven feet (2 meters) using a test procedure based on version 1.1 of the ENERGY STARĀ® test method.
Meanwhile, all high-volume ceiling fans with blade spans
greater than seven feet (2 meters) would be tested using a
modified version of the AMCA Standard 230 test procedure.
AMCA Publication 211 was modified to account for this.
AMCA Publication 511
A revision of AMCA Publication 511 includes changes to the
backdraft damper leakage section, which allows manufacturers
to show compliance with the new code and regulation leakage
requirements for non-motorized dampers. This revision changes
the testing requirements to obtain certification for backdraft
dampers. The backdraft damper leakage program now requires
three to five different sizes of dampers to be tested. Previously,
only one size backdraft damper had to be tested.
Database Rewrite
The CRP department is in the process of rewriting the database
in order to operate the program more efficiently. It will interface with AMCA laboratories worldwide, as well as AMCA
independent laboratories, to follow up with members regarding
contract tests, precertification tests and check tests.
