The building enclosure is always evolving in response to the home owner’s requirements and a number of those requirements are linked to Building Code(s) compliance. The speakers will present an overview of the Intertek testing facility, and provide examples of tests, marks and services of tested products. The presentation will also shed some light on the differences between testing and certification, and the steps involved in each, and the need to have an accredited laboratory approve various products.
