Comprehensive testing and balancing (TAB) and functional performance testing are vital to the commissioning process. It is therefore recommended that certified, independent testing specialists perform this work on all commissioning projects.


The Associated Air Balance Council (AABC) is a nonprofit association of certified, independent test and balance engineers, who by definition are qualified to provide specialized testing services on commissioning projects.
