LEED Rating System Drafts

LEED is developed through a process in which proposed new rating systems or significant revisions to existing ones are reviewed by USGBC, the Technical Advisory Group, USGBC’s Board of Directors, and finally, the LEED Steering Committee. Once these reviews are completed, the new rating systems or revisions are opened for public review and comment. In accordance with USGBC policies, the first comment period is open to the public for at least 45 days. After the comment period closes, comments are incorporated into the draft, an outline of the changes are posted, and a second public comment period is held, during which the public can comment on any changes made since the first comment period. The final draft is delivered to USGBC members for balloting.
