Home Innovation NGBS Green Certified Products bridge the gap between manufacturers who produce NGBS point-worthy products and the home builders and designers who want to use them.
For a product to become NGBS Green Certified, a manufacturer must demonstrate the product's compliance with the specific requirements of the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard (NGBS) by providing appropriate third-party data. Home Innovation reviews the data and determines the product's NGBS point-worthiness within relevant practices.
The certification provides green home designers and product specifiers a pre-approved list of products and their associated point values within the NGBS. It can also streamline the verification process for Home Innovation-accredited green building verifiers and builders participating in NGBS home certification — if a verifier sees a product is NGBS Green Certified and installed correctly, no further documentation is needed to prove the product meets the NGBS criteria.
There are plenty of manufacturers who claim their products have green attributes. Even the Federal Trade Commission has taken notice by cracking down on bogus green product claims with its Green Guides. NGBS Green Certified Product manufacturers can back up their claims with certification by an industry-trusted, independent third party.
