Research Reports

Demonstrating code compliance of building components is essential, and a requirement, in today‚Äôs built environment. When the design, application, and/or installation of a building component is not addressed through the prescriptive measures of the codes — that is, when a manufacturer makes an innovative product not already covered in the codes — a research report can assist the building official in approving the innovative product. What manufacturers of these innovative products need is a trusted, cost-effective, and efficient path to such compliance.
