When are these changes effective?

The Indoor airPLUS Construction Specifications Version 1 (Rev. 02) may be used by builders and Raters immediately.


Homes permitted on or after July 1, 2013 must use the Revision 1 or Revision 2 Construction Specifications and Verification Checklist. Raters should complete only one Indoor airPLUS Verification Checklist per home.

Why isn't this revision called Version 2?

The changes being adopted now are technical and policy clarifications and revisions but do not increase the requirements for builders to obtain the Indoor airPLUS label. EPA intends to make periodic refinements to the Indoor airPLUS Constructions Specifications using a Policy Record process to record and update Indoor airPLUS partners about future changes.
