ASHRAE Amends Addenda


ASHRAE, in an effort to increase use of its standards, is changing the method by which it makes addenda to code-intended standards available.

Board-approved addenda to code-intended standards will now be published in supplements, each of which will be published on a regular schedule halfway between the three-year publication of each standard. Addenda also will be incorporated into each standard when it is reissued after its last publication.

The change applies to standards on continuous maintenance:

  • Standard 15, Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems

  • Standard 34, Designation and Safety Classification of Refrigerants

  • Standard 52.2, Method of Testing General Ventilation Air Cleaning Devices for Removal Efficiency by Particle Size

  • Standard 62.1, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Commercial, Institutional, Industrial and High-Rise Residential Buildings

  • Standard 62.2, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings

  • Standard 90.1, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings

  • Standard 90.2, Energy Efficient Design of Low-Rise Residential Buildings

  • Standard 140, Standard Method of Test for the Evaluation of Building Energy Analysis Computer Programs.

The first supplements will be available in March 2006.
