ASHRAE Updates Legionellosis Risk Management Standard
New standard for internal water systems for large buildings will help with Legionella prevention
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) is looking to “change the face of Legionella prevention” through consensus on a new standard for internal water systems for large buildings.
ASHRAE made public a new draft of its Standard 188P entitled "Legionellosis Risk Management for Building Water Systems." The draft will undergo public review until the end of this summer. A final standard is expected in 2015. ASHRAE standards are not binding, but governments use them as the basis for local building codes.
