ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 202: Commissioning Process for Buildings and Systems is ASHRAE’s first standard focused on the commissioning process.

09/26/2013


A newly published standard focused on the commissioning process will help ensure a fully functional, fine-tuned facility.

ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 202: Commissioning Process for Buildings and Systems identifies the minimum acceptable commissioning process for buildings and systems as described in ASHRAE’s Guideline 0-2005: The Commissioning Process. Standard 202 is ASHRAE’s first standard focused on the commissioning process. The commissioning process as detailed in Standard 202 applies to all construction projects and systems and is an industry consensus document.

The commissioning process assumes that owners, programmers, designers, contractors and operations and maintenance entities are fully accountable for the quality of their work. The process begins at project inception and continues for the life of a facility.

The process includes specific tasks to be conducted to verify that design, construction, verification, testing, documentation, and training meet the owner’s project requirements.
