Non-Compliance Risk Assessment Tool
The Non-Compliance Risk Assessment Tool (NC-RAT) allows users to evaluate energy efficiency policy enforcement efforts and associated market non-compliance risk.
NC-RAT is an easy-to-use tool that is based on a qualitative assessment of national policy implementation and enforcement mechanisms.
The Non-Compliance Risk Assessment Tool (NC-RAT) is an easy-to-use tool that is based on a qualitative assessment of national compliance programs and organized under five Indicators: Regulation, Resources, Certification & Registration, Market Surveillance & Enforcement, and Compliance Communication. Each Indicator includes relevant questions for the user to respond to, based on which, the Tool calculates scores for 1) each Indicator and 2) a corresponding overall score for market non-compliance risk. The tool also provides initial recommendations for how policymakers can strengthen compliance programs, based on individual user responses
To learn more about how to use the NC-RAT, watch this how-to video for a step-by-step tutorial.
