ASHRAE Amends Addenda

By Staff October 1, 2005

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.
