ASHRAE STD 62.1
Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality
|Publication Date:||22 June 2019|
ASHRAE Standard 62.1 currently does not have ventilation air requirements for animal facilities such as animal shelters, veterinary offices, and veterinary hospitals. The 1973 edition of the standard provided values for these spaces, but these values were removed in the 1989 edition. Due to various contaminant sources present in these facilities, mainly animal waste decomposition that could result in ammonia generation, occupants working at or visiting these faculties may be subjected to harmful concentration of contaminants without proper ventilation. This addendum adds requirements for those spaces. Ammonia is added to compounds of common interest in a different addenda.
Note: In this addendum, changes to the current standard are indicated in the text by underlining (for additions) and (for deletions) unless the instructions specifically mention some other means of indicating the changes.
