For Legacy Rating Tools (not available for registration)
Legacy rating tools are previous versions of Green Star rating tools that have been superseded by the release of Green Star - Design & As Built.
Registration under these rating tools closed in December 2015, new projects must register under the current versions of the Green Star rating tools.
Projects which have been previously registered or have been certified for a Design rating using a Legacy Rating Tool will still be able to register for an As Built rating, provided that the eligibility criteria is still met.
Information on certification fees for legacy rating tools can be found here.
Please note that the Additional Fees outlined above may also apply to projects that are registered under the Legacy Rating Tools.
