ASHRAE to Add New Codes Position

While ASHRAE's code activities in the 1990s were mainly limited to the monitoring of the CABO Model Energy Code, its present code activities are much more demanding; more than 10 ASHRAE standards are currently referenced in national and international codes.

While ASHRAE's code activities in the 1990s were mainly limited to the monitoring of the CABO Model Energy Code, its present code activities are much more demanding; more than 10 ASHRAE standards are currently referenced in national and international codes.

"In recent years, as the society began to write standards intended for adoption by code models, ASHRAE's activities in codes interaction moved from a fairly passive monitoring of codes to a much more proactive interaction with the model code bodies," said Bruce Hunn, ASHRAE director of technology.

This increase in activity has led the organization to create a new staff position to handle codes work—the assistant manager of standards/codes, who will work directly with ASHRAE's Code Interaction Subcommittee (CIS) and will be responsible for interacting with model code organizations, such as the International Code Council (ICC) and the National Fire Protection Assn. (NFPA), and representing ASHRAE at code hearings.

An application for the position is located at ashrae.org .
