The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) and the Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) signed a memorandum of understanding on mutual cooperation and assistance in providing services to their respective members, many of whom are common to both associations. The agreement was signed by AHRI President and CEO Stephen Yurek and by HRAI Chairman Gerry Cellucci during HRAI's annual meeting in August in Kananaskis, Alberta.

Specifically, AHRI and HRAI agreed to provide technical assistance to each other, on an as-available basis, in understanding and responding to legislative, regulatory, and code body proposals and activities regarding the safety, energy, and environmental aspects of building standards, product standards, or product installation requirements.

The two organizations also agreed to present the policy interests of the other to its country's governmental authorities or code bodies, when there is no conflict between their respective interests and when mutually agreed, concerning the above topics. AHRI and HRAI committed to working together to jointly provide proactive and robust services to each other's members in promoting common policy positions/statements, and communicating those positions to their respective governments and code bodies, and avoiding to the extent possible conflicting policy positions.

"This MOU will solidify our relationship and better define to our respective members how we support each other in the government affairs and standards-writing areas in each country," said HRAI President Warren Heeley.
