Software/Versions Affected:

The Windows and Daylighting Group of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy, performs technical review of product data originating in the U.S. LBNL also updates and maintains the database file itself. The WinDat Network, with support from the European Commission, performs technical review of data originating in Europe. The Japanese Glass Manufacturers association is considering performing technical review on glass originating in Asia. The Australasian Window Council performs technical review on glazing originating in Australia. The database could not exist of course without the support of the glazing manufacturers themselves who measure and format the spectral data and provide additional product information. The manufacturers also play a critical role in peer review of all data.
