Audits, Checklist Updates & More: Seeking Your Input

 

Audits

 

September 3, 2013—Please be advised there will be some updates to our audit process effective January 2014. Primarily this will involve five per cent of all Built Green® projects to undergo a visible audit whereby your CEA conducts an on-site review of those checklist items that are “visibly inspectible”.

 

More information on this including those “visibly inspectible” items will be shared in the coming months.

 

Checklist Updates – Seeking your input

 

The Technical Standards Committee will be meeting early in October for its annual review, which will include the checklist. Updates will be communicated in advance with respect to the updated checklist to be rolled-out in January 2014 with clear instructions, transition times, and identification of where updates have been made.

 

In advance of the October meeting, we are asking for your input. During the year we receive request for information/interpretation on checklist items and this informs the review process. In addition, we want to reach out to you formally and request that if you have any questions or suggestions to please email to us no later than Monday, September 16.

 

For those submitting information kindly include the checklist item and if your submission involves a requested change, please provide supporting documentation to substantiate your request.
