Viral Response Certification first applies to a user-defined “entity,” which encompasses any collection of assets that have consistent policies and practices—from a single building, to a regional portfolio, to an entire company. A company may choose to achieve separate certifications for multiple entities if internal policies and practices differ by geography, asset type, or another factor.
The cost to certify a single entity is $4,500 USD, plus a registration fee of $500 USD. Once Viral Response Certification at the entity level is achieved, companies can demonstrate application across specific assets. In order to receive Viral Response Approval, an asset must fully align with all specified policies and practices achieved in the relevant entity’s Viral Response Certification.
The cost to apply a VRM certification to an asset is $500 USD per asset.
