Who Can Be Certified

AHRI’s certification programs are voluntary and open to all foreign and domestic Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Private Brand Marketers (PBMs) that produce products, which fall within the scope of one or more of the certification programs.

Many OEMs and PBMs are eligible to participate in multiple AHRI certification programs. In addition, OEMs and PBMs do not have to be AHRI members to participate and their products do not have to be sold in North America. However, certification participants who are AHRI members receive additional benefits such as reduced licensing fees.
