II. AHRI Membership Annual Sales Volume Reporting Guide

Manufacturers (OEMs) should report annual sales volumes for:

  • All equipment manufactured in North America (including products exported overseas)
  • All equipment manufactured overseas, imported, and sold in North America
  • North American sales for each product section in which the company is a member
    • If the product is categorized in two AHRI-defined product section scopes, e.g., ductless and unitary small equipment, enter the sales figures per product-type so the accurate annual sales volume is represented in each product section.
  • International Affiliate Members shall submit sales volume for all product sold, regardless of location of sale, in the membership categories they participate in.

Please note the following:

  • DO NOT submit separate annual sales volumes for each manufacturing location.
    • Instead, sum these amounts and enter the total sales figure; if this is not possible, please notify Membership@ahrinet.org so alternative reporting arrangements can be made.
  • DO NOT enter the combined sales figure in both product sections.
  • DO NOT report sales for products manufactured AND sold outside of North America

Per AHRI bylaws, annual sales volume reporting is mandatory and due within 30 days. Each Full, International, and International Affiliate Member shall annually submit its sales volume for all products within the scope of every product section for which it is eligible based on the prior 12 month period ending June 30. Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Certification Participants must annually submit sales volume for all equipment bearing the AHRI certification mark. Sales volume data is required for each certification program in which the OEM Participant participates.

    • Reporting criteria are distinct and will result in different figures used to calculate your company's annual membership or certification license fee
    • Please refer to the corresponding instructions to view specific differences

  • Why can I only see some product sections/certification programs on the reporting page?

    • No, you do not need to report annual sales volume for product you are no longer selling/manufacturing.
