California Mechanical Acceptance Test Technician & Employer Certification Provider


Mechanical Acceptance Tests performed by MATT-1

With the 2019 Substantive Change Amendment, NEMIC provides two levels of MATT Certifications.

A NEMIC Certified MATT is one who is knowledgeable about Mechanical Acceptance Testing as required by the Standards. The MATT performs the acceptance verification reported on the Certificate of Acceptance (Field Technician).

A NEMIC-certified MATT Level 1 performs the work described above for the Mechanical Systems Acceptance Tests listed in Section 10-103.2(1)B of the Standards. Beginning with the 2019 Standards, the NA7.5.17 Occupied Standby Acceptance will also be included as part of the MATT Level 1 scope.

For clarification, the MATT Level 1 Scope for the 2016 Standards includes the following eight Mechanical Acceptance Tests:

      i.         NA7.5.1 Outdoor Air Ventilation Systems
     ii.         NA7.5.2 Constant Volume, Single Zone Unitary Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps
    iii.         NA7.5.4 Air Economizer Controls
    iv.         NA7.5.5 Demand Control Ventilation Systems
     v.         NA7.5.6 Supply Variable Flow Controls
    vi.         NA7.5.7, NA7.5.9 Hydronic System Variable Flow Controls
   vii.         NA7.5.10 Automatic Demand Shed Controls

Beginning with the 2019 Standards, the NA7.5.17 Occupied Standby Acceptance will also be included as part of the MATT Level 1 scope. The MATT Level 1 scope will otherwise concur with any changes to Section 10-103.2(b)1.B of the Standards after 2019.
