AHRI works in three main areas:
AHRI develops industry-recognized performance standards for industry equipment that are used throughout the world. Through the use of industry standards and voluntary participation in AHRI's certification programs, consumers can be assured manufacturers' performance claims are accurate and rated uniformly, enabling fair comparisons. AHRI provides access to its standards and guidelines, as well as information about how they are developed and advanced globally.
AHRI advocates on behalf of its members at all levels of the government. We work to make sure members’ interests are included in final drafts of legislations
The AHRI Certification Program is the cornerstone of the company, both globally recognized and respected. It certifies products and benefits participants, as equipment and component manufacturers, to sell more products, to win bids, to distinguish from competitors, and to comply with government requirements.
