W
hat is AMCA? "
Depending on whom you ask, Air Movement
and Control Association (AMCA) International is:
■
A developer of equipment test standards used the
world over.
An accreditor of laboratories that test air-system
components.
■ An educator of air-systems and buildings professionals.
■
An advocate for its more than 400 manufacturer members
on matters related to codes, standards, regulations, and
legislation.
AMCA is indeed all of those things, but while those
things help to describe AMCA, they do not defi ne AMCA.
The essence of AMCA-what makes AMCA what it
fundamentally is and, without which, AMCA loses its
identity-lies in its Certifi ed Ratings Program (CRP).
The primary means through which AMCA fulfi lls
its mission to " uphold industry integrity on behalf of
AMCA members worldwide, " the CRP provides assurance
not only that a product line has been tested and
rated in accordance with uniform and equitable technical
CRP by the Numbers

standards and procedures, but that manufacturers'
published performance data are accurate and, thus,
reliable, in the process discouraging the marketing of
products with invalid ratings.
Think about it: If you were
in the market for a used automobile,
would you insist on one
that is mechanically certifi ed,
or would you accept a salesperson's
claim that a vehicle's
previous owner was the proverbial
little old lady who only
drove the vehicle to church
on Sundays? A " certifi ed preowned "
designation-particularly
from a third-party source
with no skin in the game-is
your assurance a vehicle has
undergone rigorous inspection
and is in good operating
condition; it is peace of mind
that your investment is sound.
Likewise, a seal from AMCA's
CRP (Figure 1) is affi rmation an air-system product
will perform as described in the manufacturer's sales
literature.
This article explains the workings of the AMCA CRP

seal for louvers combining

and

certifi cations.
and illuminates why products that undergo the rigorous
certifi cation process deserve to be specifi ed ahead of
products that do not. Additionally, it highlights the
capabilities and services of the AMCA International
laboratory in Arlington Heights, Ill.
