This image shows an example of a specification that had a comment submitted and accepted.

The next regularly scheduled Standard Work Specifications (SWS) comment review event will occur on March 19, 2017. This event will be held in conjunction with the HPC National Home Performance Conference and is open to the public. All new comments must be received by January 20, 2017 in order to be reviewed at this meeting. All comments submitted after this date will be reviewed at a later time.

More information on the comment adjudication process can be found on the SWS Maintenance page.

New Feature

Users can now view previously submitted and accepted comments via the SWS Online Tool. While these changes won't be official until Fall 2017, users can use this feature to see all forthcoming changes.

Standard Work Specifications

The Standard Work Specifications (SWS) are a major component of the Guidelines for Home Energy Professionals project and define the minimum requirements to ensure that the work performed during home energy upgrades is effective, durable, and safe. The SWS are a useful resource for workers, crew leaders, instructors, and program administrators involved in residential retrofits.

In order for the SWS to remain relevant and useful, they must evolve to reflect current industry best practices. This process is made possible through the submission of comments by industry experts. Comments can be directly submitted through the SWS Online Tool.
