NLC5.1 is a minor revision that contains updates to the policy’s energy monitoring and cybersecurity requirements. There will not be a delisting associated with the policy. Existing listed v5.0 NLC will continue to be DLC listed.

Cybersecurity updates

  • Includes updated criteria for acceptance

Other updates

  • A new section clarifies Primary Use Designations, such as “Whole Building” and “Portfolio”.
  • The “Requirements Other Than Control Capabilities” section is now formatted as Table 0, rather than as text.
  • The words “Interior” and “Exterior” were changed to “Indoor” and “Outdoor” to align with other DLC documents.
