An addendum to the ASHRAE ventilation standard that contains requirements for separating smoking and non-smoking spaces opened for public review on March 12. ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62-2001, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality, sets minimum ventilation rates and other requirements for commercial and institutional buildings.
Proposed addendum 62g was approved for a fifth public review at ASHRAE's 2004 Winter Meeting held in Anaheim, CA January 24-28. The comment period for addendum 62g starts March 12 and ends April 26. It will be open as an independent substantive change, meaning only limited portions will be available for public comment at this time.
