Who typically facilitates the commissioning process, and what is their role?

The commissioning process is typically facilitated by the Commissioning Authority (CxA), who is often contracted directly by the owner. The CxA acts as an impartial third-party facilitator, ensuring that the commissioning process is carried out objectively and in accordance with the owner’s project requirements. The CxA’s role includes planning, coordinating, and overseeing the commissioning process, as well as verifying that the installed systems meet the specified criteria.
