Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) President and CEO Stephen Yurek was in India to sign a tripartite agreement with the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE) and the Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Manufacturers Association (RAMA), establishing the basis for cooperation on the development and harmonization of standards and laying the groundwork for cooperation on performance certification programs in the future.

The agreement, signed February 19, grants for two years the Indian parties non-exclusive, irrevocable licenses to use both current and future AHRI standards, in whole or in part, for the development and use of Indian Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Equipment Testing and Rating Standards (IAS) in India. The intent is that standards developed, adopted, or modified under this agreement will be adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards and referenced by the Indian Bureau of Energy Efficiency, both of which will ensure widespread use of those standards throughout India.

"This agreement builds upon an agreement we signed two years ago with ISHRAE that began the standards harmonization process between our organizations," said Yurek. "We are pleased that the Indian organizations wish to continue and even expand our standards development relationship for the benefit of their members, our members, and the people of India," he said. Since that agreement was signed, 15 standards have been harmonized, and an additional 25 are in the process of being harmonized.
