Battelle performs endorsement reviews on new and maintenance measures twice a year during spring and fall cycles. Each cycle includes an Intent to Submit period followed by full measure submission. Please review the Endorsement and Maintenance (E&M) Guidebook to learn more about the E&M process.

Maintenance of Endorsement and Annual Update

Once a measure is endorsed, it will enter a 5-year maintenance cycle, at which time the measure is resubmitted to Battelle for endorsement review. However, prior to the 5-year maintenance review, at three (3) years since the measure’s endorsement, developers/stewards provide a status report indicating whether any changes to the measure specifications are needed. The developer/steward may also submit an attestation if no changes are required.

Additionally, every year, when an endorsed measure is not being re-evaluated for continued endorsement, measure stewards have the option to submit a status report (i.e., annual update) of the measure specifications to Battelle. This report either reaffirms the measure specifications remain the same as those at the time of endorsement or last update, or outlines any changes or updates made to the endorsed measure, including the purpose for the changes.

Please download and complete the Status Report/Annual Update Form. Submit the completed form to [email protected]. Battelle staff review to confirm if any changes indicated require the measure to be submitted for endorsement review before the 5-year maintenance cycle (i.e., early maintenance review). If an early maintenance review is required, Battelle will contact the measure’s point of contact to confirm next steps. For more information, please refer to the Maintenance of Endorsement section of the E&M Guidebook.
