CHICAGO – Intertek, a leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, will connect with HVACR stakeholders and share knowledge about ongoing industry trends, standards development, and testing, inspection, and certification needs at the 2015 AHR Expo, taking place January 26–28, 2015, at McCormick Place in Chicago. Bring your questions and curiosities to us at Booth #4042 to learn what’s hot and what’s happening in Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration.

As the world’s largest HVACR independent test facility, Intertek and its experienced engineers offer a wealth of information on current and forward-looking issues affecting the industry. From energy efficiency and smart appliances to safety, flammability, and building energy management systems, we understand this quickly changing market and work from the component level up to ensure your offerings stay at the forefront of what is and will be available.

Our engineers are involved in the development and writing of industry-guiding standards, as well as a range of technical panels, and they continually offer insight on how the regulatory process and relevant changes affect your business now and in the future. The 2015 AHR Expo is a chance to discuss evolving regulations—such as changes with the upcoming February implementation of UL 1995/CSA 22.2 No. 236 4th Edition—directly with these Intertek experts.

Expert Andy Gbur, Senior Director of Chemical Services for Intertek, will impart essential information about shifting environmental regulations and the HVACR industry as part of a presentation on Tuesday, January 27, at 12:30 p.m. in the South Hall Exhibit Floor - Theater B. Hear about navigating the increasingly complex chemical, environmental, and related requirements for HVACR, including restricted chemicals and new approach Directives to CE mark products; scope assessments; technical file support; and other global regulations and stipulations. Gbur and other experts also will be accessible at Intertek’s booth for one-on-one meetings and discussions during the show. In these sessions you can ask your specific questions and get knowledgeable, precise answers about the issues that may be slowing your product and business development.

Intertek is also highlighting the topics of Energy Management Systems and Smart Buildings at the 2015 AHR Expo. Learn how we can help with interoperability, smart grid certification, and an overall introduction to the intersection of HVACR industry and the Internet of Things (IoT), and how we can help manufacturers navigate challenges and impending regulation. Stop by the booth to meet one-on-one with Intertek’s IoT Global Business Line Lead Marcel Hill, to chat with our other experts in attendance, and to schedule future meetings.
