Evaluation proposal for adoption ISO 5151:2017 “Non-ducted air conditioners and heat pumps — Testing and rating for performance” standard26 August 2021
The Suriname Standards Bureau (SSB) recently received a letter from the organization Alginco N.V. regarding a proposal to adopt the ISO 5151:2017 “Non-ducted air conditioners and heat pumps — Testing and rating for performance” standard. You will receive the request as an attachment in the form of the New Work Item Proposal (NWIP).
The purpose of adopting the aforementioned standard is primarily to develop a National Standard that protects consumers. Secondly, a National Standard provides importers, distributors, and installers with guidance on the minimum requirements when testing and determining the capacity and efficiency of air-cooled air conditioners and air-to-air heat pumps. To gain insight into the scope of the standard, you will receive the scope of this standard as appendix 2.
Following the standardization process, support must first be achieved before the SSB can further coordinate this process. Therefore, as an interested stakeholder organization/institute, you are urged to complete the online evaluation form by September 16, 2021.
The completed evaluation form is of paramount importance because we can determine whether there is a need to adopt this standard based on your evaluation. After the evaluation, the National Electrotechnical Commission (NEC) will adopt the standard.
