NEBB releases procedural standards

The Procedural Standards for Whole Building Systems Commissioning of New Construction was recently released.


The National Environmental Balancing Bureau (NEBB) has released the third edition of the NEBB Procedural Standards for Whole Building Systems Commissioning of New Construction. The purpose of the procedural standards is to establish a uniform and systematic set of criteria for the performance of the commissioning of building and environmental systems.

NEBB created the Accredited Associate Program to offer individuals who have a special interest in aligning themselves with NEBB and its programs.

The third edition represents a departure from past editions and is divided into three distinct parts: Standards, Process and Procedures. Previous editions included the requirements for commissioning of HVAC and Plumbing systems. The third edition details the requirements for Whole Building Systems Commissioning and includes HVAC Systems, Building Envelope, Electrical Systems, Special Electrical Systems, Plumbing Systems and Fire Protection Systems.

The third edition of the NEBB Procedural Standards for Whole Building Systems Commissioning of New Construction establishes a minimum level of technical effort to provide value. The NEBB Commissioning program complements the current editions of ASHRAE Guideline 0, The Commissioning Process and ASHRAE Guide 1, The HVAC Commissioning Process, from pre-design phase through occupancy and operations phase.
