The National Fenestration
Rating Council (NFRC)
The NFRC is a non-profit organization that administrates the only uniform, independent rating and labeling system for the energy performance of windows, doors, skylights,
and attachment products.

The NFRC's goal is to provide fair, accurate, and reliable energy performance ratings so that:
Architects, builders, code officials, contractors,
homeowners, and others can compare different
products and make informed product choices.
Building officials, state government employees,
and others involved in code development and
enforcement can determine if products meet
local codes.
Government (and utility) run energy efficiency
programs can establish performance requirements
and standards.
Manufacturers have a fair and level playing field
to compare products and an accurate method of
showing the energy benefits of new designs
or technology.
NFRC's former e-newsletter, Update, served all
of us well for many years. The rapid evolution of technology, however, has changed the way the
world communicates and NFRC has changed, too. Rather than publishing quarterly e-newsletters,
we have created NFRC News Now to provide you
with more timely information pertaining to the fenestration industry.
NFRC CORE VALUES
Commitment to the public interest by providing
fair, accurate, and credible ratings
Consensus driven process - Varied interests work
together, crafting a balanced approach to our work
Respect all input from stakeholders
Protect and preserve the integrity of the NFRC
and its programs and ratings
NFRC GOALS
  Deliver valid, usable data to all customers
(public/building industry/code officials/government
   Deliver a successful energy rating program to the
commercial fenestration industry
      Deliver an improved and simplified rating program
for the residential fenestration industry
       Deliver new rating procedures and programs for
existing and emerging technologies
THE HISTORY OF NFRC
The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC)
was formed in response to the energy crises of
the 1970s.
To address concerns about energy consumption, the fenestration industry developed
a host of new energy efficient technologies,
including low-e coatings, low-conductance spacers, and gas fills.
Unfortunately, in advertising these new technologies some manufacturers made outlandish claims about the performance of their products. Consumers complained, and the federal government began to investigate. By the late 1980s, industry stakeholders staved off confusion, federal intervention, and perhaps costly litigation by coming together in 1989 and founding NFRC to provide independent verification of product performance.
