LEED 2012 Third Public Comment Period Now Open

March 1, 2012 from American Institute of Steel Construction

The third public comment period for the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED Rating System Development begins today and is open until March 20, 2012. This third draft of the rating system focuses on providing a simple-to-use, technically advanced and more robust system, marking the start of the LEED 2012 program delivery process. Members of the public can comment on any substantive changes made since the second public comment period last year.

You can review and comment on any of the LEED 2012 rating systems at USGBC’s website at http://bit.ly/AtSAaZ, where you’ll also find additional resources including technical refinements, LEED 2012 Credit Category webcasts and responses to comments from the previous public comment period.

Once the comment period process concludes, LEED 2012 will be balloted in June and launched in November. Beginning April 2, employees of USGBC national member organizations in good standing are eligible to opt in and vote in the ballot. For more information about USGBC, visit www.usgbc.org.
