WEP Application Process for Manufacturers
Manufacturers who wish to have a NSAI Agrément Window Energy Performance on their products please see links below for the application form and terms and conditions of the WEP scheme.
How to Apply
Before making your formal application to NSAI Agrément:
- you should ask a competent Simulator to undertake a rating of your window(s) on your behalf. From this exercise you will obtain an appreciation of the potential rating readily achievable from your window design.
- If your market equires a different window rating, a re-design may be required. Once the competent Simulator has carried out the rating of the window(s), the simulator then completes the NSAI Window Energy Performance application form and, with all relevant documentation, submits the application form to NSAI Agrément.
- A production inspection audit of the manufacturing/Quality System will then be carried out by NSAI Agrément.When this inspection has been completed and approved by NSAI Agrément and all fees paid, NSAI Agrément will then allocate a registration number and place it on our WEP register of window manufacturers/suppliers.
- Once approval has been received, the window manufacturer/supplier is entitled to mark their product(s) with the WEP number and affix the WEP label on their product(s).
