Your Expert Guide in Building Product Testing, Listing, and Evaluation.

Streamlined Building Product Evaluation: From Test Plan to ESR

Though a cooperative agreement with ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), the premier product evaluation/listing agency in North America, Home Innovation Research Labs expertly serves the manufacturers of building and plumbing products seeking Evaluation Reports or product listing/labeling services. This cooperation provides a turnkey testing, evaluation, and listing process, and makes the overall process much more predictable in terms of your allocation of resources.

The product evaluation process can be complex, nuanced, and iterative -- manufacturers of innovative building products must go through the process, but they don't have to go through it alone. Home Innovation can help. We serve as your guide and, most importantly, your advocate on the path to achieving an ESR. We provide the best client experience in the industry for product testing, evaluation, and listing. We help manufacturers develop a test plan, taking all likely needs into consideration early in the process. We take the guesswork out of the type and quantity of testing that will be needed. Our services apply to manufacturers of all products in the built environment, from innovative building products, to more typical plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas, and swimming pool products.

Quality Assurance

Having a formal quality assurance (QA) system is a precursor to most product certification or listing programs, but we know from experience that creating one can be a daunting prospect for many manufacturers. To help our clients acquire the ESRs they seek from ICC-ES, and in keeping with Home Innovation's overall mission to reduce barriers to innovation, we have created a quick guide for setting up a quality assurance (QA) system. The document outlines the key elements for a basic quality system based on the ICC-ES qualifying inspection.
