A CF-3R refers to a certificate of HERS (Home Energy Rating System) test results. These certificate are created by a HERS Rater, an independent inspector specially-trained by CalCERTS.
The goal of the registry is to provide a place for HERS Raters to submit their test results in comparison with installation (CF-2R) and design (CF-1R) documents. With all the documents in one place, the building department can easily review the digital reports and determine the status of your job.
Anyone can be the Documentation Author of a CF3R form, but only the Rater who performed the tests may be indicated as the Responsible Rater.
