Code Compliance Research Reports
Get your products to market faster and more cost effectively
You want to get your products fast, in a cost-effective manner, and with as little resistance as possible. You need a Code Compliance Research Report (CCRR) by Intertek.
The CCRR by Intertek program is a byproduct of Intertek’s acquisition of Architectural Testing, Inc. (ATI) in December of 2013 and the combination of ATI’s CCRR program and the Intertek Research Report (IRR). Now, with over a decade of being fully engaged in development, execution, and issuing of code evaluations, Intertek can provide you a single source solution to the necessary product certification.
Each CCRR is developed under the supervision of a professionally licensed Intertek engineer who is separated from the testing process. This ensures that an alternative material, product, design, or method of construction has been demonstrated by approved testing and engineering analysis to comply with the intent of the building code referenced in the report.
Each CCRR is issued with Intertek’s ETL Mark—one of the most trusted and utilized marks in North America. This mark helps represent compliance with the building code to code officials, architects, and the industry, giving you the acceptance you need to gain the market access you want. To see our current CCRRs, please see our product directory.
The CCRR shows your product’s compliance and helps code officials make an acceptance decision, making it easier to sell your product in thousands of jurisdictions across North America. Use of the Code Compliance ETL Mark to represent the CCRR brings instant recognition to code officials across North America.
Intertek’s CCRR program is fully accredited under ISO/IEC Standard 17065, Conformity assessment — Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes, and services, by International Accreditation Service (IAS), an International Code Council (ICC) Subsidiary, and by ANSI International. Our programs are compliant to Section 1703 of the International Building Code.
