Specifying Authority (SA) & CMA Overview
  • What is a Specifying Authority?
  • What does a Specifying Authority do?

Specifying Authority Tutorial

what is a specifying authority sa
What is a Specifying Authority (SA) ?

The entity that specifies the fenestration products/systems and components, and identifies the suppliers to be used on a commercial or nonresidential project in order to meet design and performance requirements. The Specifying Authority enters into a license agreement with NFRC and obtains an NFRC label certificate for a project. This entity may be, but is not limited to, an architect, engineer, fenestration manufacturer, general contractor or supplier.

  • Executes a project-specific license agreement with NFRC
  • Legal entity owning the CMA Label Certificate
  • Label Certificates will incur no fees in 2014!

What does the SA do?

  • Provides the ACE with detailed project specifications
  • Logs into CMAST and opens the notification information
  • Digitally signs the online NFRC License Agreement
  • Accesses the LC publically on web site

Specifying Authority Tutorial

slide5

What does the SA do?

  • Provides the ACE with detailed project specifications
    • This can be done via the Specifying Authority Project Data Form (see below) or by filling out a form provided by your ACE.

Specifying Authority Tutorial

Specifying Authority Project Data Form

The Specifying Authority Project Data Form can be found on the NFRC website, on the Specifying Authority page (http://www.nfrc.org/CMA/SA.aspx).

This form is to help assist the Specifying Authority in providing all the pertinent information to the ACE org.

The Specifying Authority Project Data Form has all the necessary data for the ACE, including the Specifying Authority & project information.

Specifying Authority Tutorial

The Specifying Authority Project Data Form will also have information regarding the ACE & IA.

As the example here shows, you’ll need details of the framing sections to ensure your ACE has the proper components.

  • CMA CPD ID # can be found in the CMA CPD at this link: http://cmast.nfrc.org/Component/FrameComponentFind.aspx

Notice Frame Assemblies are numbered:

where do components come from
CMA OverviewWhere do Components Come From?
  • Frame Components
    • simulated by NFRC accredited simulations labs
    • Validation test by NFRC accredited lab
    • IA reviews test and sim report, uploads to CMAST
    • CMAST eliminates the need for detailed simulation!
    • Great simplification for general use

CMA / ACE Training

where do components come from1
CMA OverviewWhere do Components Come From?
  • Spacer components
    • simulated by NFRC accredited labs
    • IAs review and upload to CMAST
    • No validation testing
  • NFRC offers 4 generic spacers
  • Spacer component data are limited to date

CMA / ACE Training

glazing components
CMA OverviewGlazing Components
  • Manufacturers submit optical measurements to LBNL for initial review
  • LBNL administers interlaboratory comparison to industry
  • LBNL upload data to International Glazing database (IGDB)
  • Manufacturers ask to participate with NFRC rating program
    • Pay annual participation and annual component fee

cma program terms
CMA Program Terms
  • CMA Software Tool (CMAST)
  • CMA Product Certification Program (PCP)
    • NFRC 705, download from www.nfrc.org
  • Calculation Entity Approval Program (CEAP)
    • NFRC 708, download from www.nfrc.org
    • Governs CEAP Program, ACE activity
    • ACE-Approved Calculation Entity
    • ACE Organization-where ACEs employed
  • Accreditation Policy Committee (APC)
    • Reports to Board, manage CEAP

cma product certification program pcp process
CMA Product Certification Program (PCP) Process
  • Product certification occurs when a product’s ratings become part of a CMA Label Certificate
  • Products certified for a particular project can be used in subsequent projects
    • Will get new CPD IDs
  • Approved components and certified products are maintained indefinitely in CMAST until they are de-listed either voluntarily or for cause

CMA / ACE Training

nfrc ratings available in cmast
NFRC Ratings Available in CMAST
  • From CMAST
    • U-factor -Heat loss rating
    • SHGC-Solar Heat Gain Coefficient rating
    • VT-Visible Transmittance rating
  • Not available in CMAST
    • Air Leakage rating
    • Condensation Resistance rating (CR)
      • Could be in future

slide25

CMA Process

  • CMAST DEVELOPMENT
    • Manufacturers have components (glazings, frames, spacers) simulated, and submits to the IA

CMA / ACE Training

slide26

CMA Process

  • CMAST DEVELOPMENT
    • The IA reviews and approves all components before they are available for use in CMA
    • Once uploaded into the online CMAST database, components are available to all users

CMA / ACE Training

cma process
CMA Process
  • LABEL CERTIFICATE DEVELOPMENT
    • During this phase, the Specifying Authority contacts an NFRC ACE Mfr. or Ind. Organization to generate CMA Label Certificate.
    • The IA performs audits and spot reviews of CMA Label Certificates generated by ACE Organizations

CMA / ACE Training

cma process1
CMA Process
  • FIELD INSPECTION PHASE
    • Finally, the CMA Label Certificate is posted on-site for field inspection

CMA / ACE Training

slide29

CMA Quality Assurance Process

  • Documentation Trail Audits for SAs
    • IA conducts a documentation (paper-trail) audit to ensure the label certificate systems match the actual systems
    • Confirm LC calculations match actual product using drawings and BOMs
    • 1 in 20 (5%) chance of Label certificates audit

CMA / ACE Training

cma items
CMA Items
  • CMA may not be used on residential projects
    • NFRC 705, section 1.2.2.1 indicates an SA may request LCs for commercial only
    • Limited product types, see NFRC 100, section 5.9.2(may be updated soon)
  • NFRC 704 has all CMA fees (updated annually, on web site)
    • Many changes for manufacturers in 2014
    • Limited changes for ACE Orgs

cma and the building energy codes
CMA and the Building Energy Codes
  • Most states reference ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC
    • NFRC 100 and NFRC 200 are in each of these codes exclusively
    • Only defaults are alternative
  • NFRC 100 and NFRC 200 reference are how codes make reference to CMAST and CMA program

CMA / ACE Training

cma and energy codes
CMA and Energy Codes
  • AAMA 507 certificates not allowed per all energy codes
    • Defeated at IECC about 3 years ago
  • Encourage your clients to use LCs
  • Discourage all other compliance methods
  • Call NFRC for clarification
