The Testing, Adjusting, and Balancing Bureau (TABB) has earned official accreditation from the American National Standards Insitute (ANSI). ANSI oversees national norms and guidelines that directly affect business in almost every sector. The accreditation is also meant to strengthen the U.S. marketplace position in the global economy while helping to assure the safety and health of consumers and the protection of the environment.
TABB runs the testing, adjusting
and balancing (TAB) certification program, which ensures that HVAC
systems operate at the highest standards with the greatest efficiency

TABB Certification standards and
procedures for certification are set by a policy-making body, with
different professional groups acting as training and testing entities.
This structure contributed to the eligibility for ANSI
TABB affiliate offices are found in
Connecticut, Chicago, New York, Indiana, Orange County (CA), San
Francisco, St. Louis, and Los Angeles. This geographic spread and
separation of certification/testing/renewal entities is designed to
also help TABB avoid the kind of regionalized industry politics that
could possibly keep qualified contractors from becoming certified.
