The city of Los Angeles Department of Buildings and Safety’s Mechanical Testing Laboratory has approved the Solar Rating & Certification Corporation (ICC-SRCC) as a recognized listing agency for solar water heating products. As a result, ICC-SRCC certifications demonstrate the product complies with the city’s 2014 plumbing code for solar water heaters. ICC-SRCC’s Standard 100 is referenced for solar collectors. Its Standard 300 is referenced for solar water heating systems.
“Our listing agency recognition benefits code officials, inspectors, specifiers and manufacturers,” said ICC-SRCC Executive Director Eileen Prado. “The listing increases the value of ICC-SRCC certifications by eliminating the need to seek other certifications to be installed in the city of Los Angeles. If the solar collector or solar water heating system has an SRCC mark, it can be used in the city.”
ICC-SRCC’s approval is granted under the provisions for Section 98.0503 of the Los Angeles Municipal Code. Solar manufacturers can apply for ICC-SRCC certification online at www.solar-rating.org.
