A set of procedural standards has been released by the National Environmental Balancing Bureau, outlining complete testing requirements for workers conducting field tests.

 The first edition of National

Environmental Balancing Bureau (NEBB) procedural standards

for fume hood performance testing has been released. The standards are a uniform and systematic set of criteria

for the performance testing of fume hoods.  

 

Products such as fume hoods, bio-safety cabinets, and other

safety control environments present unique challenges to firms and individual

testers in the field performance of these centralized containment enclosures. NEBB

hopes its standards, along with ASHARE and ANSI, provide complete testing

requirements for workers conducting field tests.

 

NEBB is affiliated with more than 600 certified firms and

work closely with building owners, architects, engineers, and construction

contractors to reduce the environmental impact of heating and cooling systems

on the environment. At the same time, it aims to reduce building operating

costs.
