Effective May 1, 2015
Effective Date (see Schedule below): May 1, 2015
Impact Statement: A review of all Listing Reports is necessary to determine which products comply with new/revised requirements and which products will require re-evaluation. NOTE: Effective immediately, this revised standard will be exclusively used for evaluation of new products unless the Applicant requests in writing that current requirements be used along with their understanding that their listings will be withdrawn on Effective Date noted above, unless the product is found to comply with new/revised requirements.
Overview of Changes: Several revisions have occurred in the past several years:
Specific details of new/revised requirements are found in table below. NOTE: Although Standards Developing Organization did not identify an Effective Date for these updates, they are technically more stringent and a review of existing listings is necessary. Most likely, SDO had been utilizing these requirements as common practice and standard was ultimately revised.
Schedule: So that shipping of products with Listing Marks will not be interrupted, an approximate schedule has been established to ensure Listing Reports are found compliant by Effective Date:
Fees: An initial review of Listing Report (s) will be covered by a direct billing project and will be invoiced at not more than $1000 per report.
