Certification bodies nnounced for LEED Green Building Rating System will expand service, eliminate backlogs and comply with ISO standards.

As a part of the broader vision for LEED V3, the certification bodies for the LEED Green Building Rating System were recently announced. Well-known and respected for their role in certifying organizations, processes and products to ISO and other standards, they are:

  • ABS Quality Evaluations, Inc. (www.abs-qe.com)
  • BSI Management Systems America, Inc. (www.bsi-global.com)
  • Bureau Veritas North America, Inc. (www.us.bureauveritas.com)
  • DNV Certification (www.dnvcert.com)
  • Intertek ( www.intertek.com)
  • KEMA-Registered Quality, Inc. (www.kema.com)
  • Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance Inc. (www.lrqa.co.uk)
  • NSF-International Strategic Registrations (www.nsf.org)
  • SRI Quality System Registrar, Inc. (www.sri-i.com)
  • Underwriters Laboratories-DQS Inc. (www.ul.com/mss)

    In the spirit of the most successful LEED projects, this evolution in the certification process is being undertaken as an integrated part of a major update to the technical rating system, which will debut in January as LEED 2009. The update will also include a comprehensive technology upgrade to LEED Online aimed at improving the user experience and expanding its portfolio management capabilities.

    Currently, all LEED project submissions are reviewed by USGBC with the support of independently contracted reviewers. In alignment with its vision of market transformation, beginning in January 2009, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), developers of LEED, will move administration of the LEED certification process to the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI), a non-profit organization established in 2007 with the support of USGBC.
