BSR/ASHRAE Addendum 62.2L-202x, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Residential Buildings (addenda to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2022)

Proposed Addendum L would remove the option for intermittent (demand-controlled) room-level kitchen ventilation in Section 5.1. The option for continuous room-level kitchen ventilation would be retained in Section 5.2. The options for demand-controlled kitchen ventilation through a range hood or downdraft exhaust fan would also be retained. Because the standard allows for a low airflow rate for room-level kitchen ventilation in small kitchens, the proposal would require that this room-level ventilation be provided continuously to promote greater removal of kitchen pollution.  Send comments (copy psa@ansi.org) to: Online Comment Database at https://www.ashrae.org/technical resources/standards-and-guidelines/public-review-drafts

New Standard BSR/AAMI EQ110-202x, HTM educational programs (new standard) Stakeholders: Academia, hospital or healthcare professionals, home care setting training material for clinical setting, HTM professionals Project Need: There is currently a shortage of HTM academic programs that are well-aligned with the needs of today’s healthcare environment, and the competencies HTM professionals need to be effective members of the healthcare team. Additionally, confusion among HTM educational programs exists regarding what ought to be included in their program. Their desire is to follow a consistent set of industry expectations. With limited resources available to them, educational programs need guidance on what items they should prioritize. To fulfill this need, the issue needs to be addressed with the weight of a standard, rather than just a guidance document. Minimum requirements/minimum expectations must be established so that educational programs can adhere to them. Interest Categories: Industry, User, Regulatory, General Interest, Other This document provides a recommended framework for new or established educational opportunities for future HTM professionals. It addresses: Normative Definitions; Learner Evaluation; Learning Topics; Instructor Qualifications; Facilities; Instructional Best Practices; Workplace Training; Learning Venue Support; Stakeholder Relations.

New Standard BSR/UL 248-21-202x, Standard for Safety for Low-Voltage Fuses - Part 21: Fuses for the Protection of Batteries and Battery Systems (new standard) Stakeholders: Manufacturers of fuses, fuseholders, battery management systems, energy storage systems. System designers, maintainers, and users of energy storage systems and battery management systems. Project Need: Currently, there is no standard in North America specifically covering fuses for protection of battery or energy storage systems, and there is confusion in the industry on what type of fuses are suitable. Existing applications have previously applied PV fuses or semiconductor fuses, although these fuses have not specifically been evaluated for use in an energy storage system. This new Part of UL 248 series of fuses is intended to cover this gap. Interest Categories: General, Producer, Supply Chain, Commercial Industrial User, Testing & Standards This standard will cover requirements for fuses specific to protection of battery and battery systems operating at or below 2000 Vdc

New Standard

BSR/UL 2278-202x, Standard for Safety for Megawatt Charging Configured Electric Vehicle Couplers (new standard)

Stakeholders: This standard will apply to a large cross section of groups and individuals. These specific individuals would include: producers, supply chain, trade associations, commercial/industrial users, regulators, and government.

Project Need: ULSE is seeking ANSI approval on a new joint standard for the US and Canada, UL 2278. There are currently no consensus standards published in the US and Canada for Megawatt Charging Configured Electric Vehicle Couplers. This proposed joint standard for the US and Canada, UL 2278, is needed to cover the new configuration of coupler which operates at a higher voltage and current than any previously certified coupler and presents new and increased potential hazards that must be addressed by requirements that are significantly modified compared to what exists today.

Interest Categories: AHJ, Producer, Testing & Standards Organization, General, Supply Chain, and Government

This first issue of the Standard for Safety for Megawatt Charging Configured Electric Vehicle Couplers, UL 2278, is intended to be a joint standard for the US and Canada. These requirements cover vehicle connectors and vehicle inlets designated as, and configured as, megawatt charging couplers. These devices are rated up to 1500 Vdc, 3000A under conditions of continuous use. Vehicle connectors may be actively cooled, such as with liquid cooling, when operating. These devices are intended for use with conductive DC charging equipment for electric vehicles and intended to facilitate conductive connection from the charging equipment to the vehicle. These devices are for use in either indoor or outdoor, non-classified locations in accordance with National Electrical Code (NEC), NFPA 70. This standard does not cover devices used for conductive connection to an electric vehicle and consisting of configurations other than megawatt charging systems configurations. Those devices are covered by the Standard for Plugs,

Receptacles and Couplers for Electric Vehicles, UL 2251.

Addenda

BSR/ASHRAE Addendum t to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 15-202x, Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems

(addenda to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 15-2022)

The original impetus for this proposed addendum was to address changes for applications of cooling equipment specific to information technology equipment (ITE) and data center installations. The mitigation principles (refrigerant charge size restrictions, refrigerant detection, air circulation, and product listing) are the same as other applications using flammable refrigerants. One significant difference in ITE applications, due to the sensitive nature of electronic equipment to cleanliness, is that emergency ventilation using outside air is typically not an acceptable mitigation strategy. The proposed addendum allows use of air from other spaces within the building.

New Standard

BSR/UL 3141-202x, Standard for Safety for Power Control Systems (new standard)

Stakeholders: Energy industry, including utilities, AHJs, manufacturers, installers, users and authorized personnel for distributed energy resource systems, and certification bodies

Project Need: There is a need for a standard to address Distributed Energy Resource (DER) systems which are becoming increasingly complex and now include numerous mandatory grid support functions that control active or reactive power/currents. In addition, new utility interconnection requirements are being established in California and Hawaii that limit the allowable steady-state power/currents that can be imported or exported from the Point of Common Coupling (PCC). The electrification of the transportation sector will place significant new demands on the utility grid increasing the importance of DER and load management in the safe, reliable, and cost-effective operation of the grid. An additional key issue addressed by this standard is the need for an increased level of functional reliability of DER and load management to prevent overloading of busbars and conductors on the premises wiring as well as utility owned assets serving the facility.

Interest Categories: AHJ, Commercial/Industrial Users, General Interest, Producers, Supply Chain, Government, and Testing & Standards

This first issue of the Standard for Power Control Systems, UL 3141, is intended to be a joint standard for the US and Canada These requirements cover Power Control Systems (PCS) used in Distributed Energy Resource (DER) systems which include one or more power sources in addition to the primary power source, typically the utility grid. The requirements in this standard are intended to evaluate PCS that electronically control power or current flow within power distribution equipment, or within conductors at an external location, via use of external measurement and control device(s). The products covered by these requirements are intended to be installed in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, and with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I Safety Standard for Electrical engineering Installations, CSA C22.1

Revision

BSR C37.54-202X, Standard for Alternating Current High-Voltage Circuit Breakers Applied in Metal-Enclosed

Switchgear Conformance Test Procedures (revision of ANSI C37.54-2023)

Stakeholders: Utilities, manufacturers, users, contractors

Project Need: Update the existing standard for current industry practices

Interest Categories: producer, government, general interest, laboratory, user

When conformance tests are required, this standard specifies tests to demonstrate that the circuit breaker being

tested conforms with the requirements and ratings defined in accordance with ANSI/IEEE C37.04. The preferred

ratings listed are designated values but are not to be considered restrictive; however, the requirements given are

restrictive. Conformance testing may be performed in conjunction with the basic design testing, if agreeable to those

concerned; however, conformance testing is more likely to be performed to satisfy a special need, sometime after

original development. As a requirement of conformance testing, the circuit breaker shall have completed the design

testing requirements of ANSI/IEEE C37.09. If ANSI/IEEE C37.09 tests have not been previously performed, the tests

required by ANSI/IEEE C37.09 beyond tests described by this standard may be performed concurrently with

conformance testing..

Stakeholders: The stakeholders include sensor/network manufacturers, RFID tag/system manufacturers, system

integrators, sensor/RFID system users, retailers, shipping container manufacturers, shippers/carriers,

instrumentation, measurement, and control system manufacturers and users.

Project Need: RFID technologies are rapidly emerging as the means of tracking products and assets. Standards are

being developed to address these needs. Sensors can provide information about the condition of the products. And

there is a great need to provide sensor data as part of the supply chain reporting. However, openly defined standard

interfaces between sensors and RFID tags still need to be improved. Since the IEEE 1451 suite of smart transducer

interfaces for sensors and actuators are recognized sensor interface standards in the industry, this project can fill that

gap by providing such sensor-to-RFID tag interfaces to meet industry needs.

Interest Categories: A subset of the interest categories on this list is expected to comprise the consensus body:

https://ieee.box.com/v/Interest-Categories

This standard defines data formats to facilitate communications between radio frequency identification (RFID)

systems and smart RFID tags with integral smart transducers (sensors and actuators) of an Instrumentation and

Control system for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT). The standard defines the data messaging formats based on

BSR C37.54-2024A, Standard for Alternating Current High-Voltage Circuit Breakers Applied in Metal-Enclosed

Switchgear - Conformance Test Procedures (revision of ANSI C37.54-2023)

When conformance tests are required, this standard specifies tests to demonstrate that the circuit breaker being

tested conforms with the requirements and ratings defined in accordance with ANSI/IEEE C37.04. The preferred

ratings listed are designated values but are not to be considered restrictive; however, the requirements given are

restrictive. Conformance testing may be performed in conjunction with the basic design testing, if agreeable to

those concerned; however, conformance testing is more likely to be performed to satisfy a special need,

sometime after original development. As a requirement of conformance testing, the circuit breaker shall have

completed the design testing requirements of ANSI/IEEE C37.09. If ANSI/IEEE C37.09 tests have not been

previously performed, the tests required by ANSI/IEEE C37.09 beyond tests described by this standard may be

performed concurrently with conformance testing..

Revision

BSR/NFPA 76-202x, Standard for the Fire Protection of Telecommunications Facilities (revision of ANSI/NFPA 76-2020)

This standard provides requirements for fire protection of telecommunications facilities where telecommunications services such as telephone (landline, wireless)

transmission, data transmission, internet transmission, voice-over internet protocol (VoIP) transmission, and video transmission are rendered to the public.

It is not intended that this standard apply to private telecommunications facilities. Private telecommunications facilities include rooms specifically used for a business to deliver telecommunications to its employees,

containing telecommunication for employees of a company. However, private telecommunications facilities do notinclude facilities that are owned by non-utility businesses that provide telecommunications services to the public,

including, but not limited to, large medical facilities, universities, large corporate  telecommunications networks, military bases, and private prisons. Telecommunications facilities are referred to as telephone exchanges in NFPA

101 and NFPA 5000. The 2012 edition of NFPA 101 classifies telephone exchanges as special-purpose industrial occupancies, and the 2012 edition of NFPA 5000 classifies telephone exchanges as industrial occupancies.

Telecommunications facilities include signal processing equipment areas, cable entrance facility areas, power areas, main distribution frame areas, standby engine areas, technical support areas, administrative areas,

and building services and support areas occupied by a telecommunications service provider. This standard shall…

Revision

BSR/NFPA 87-202x, Standard for Fluid Heaters (revision of ANSI/NFPA 87-2021)

Explosions and fires in fuel-fired and electric fluid heaters constitute a loss potential in life, property, and

production. This recommended practice is a compilation of guidelines, rules, and methods applicable to the safe

operation of this type of equipment. Conditions and regulations that are not covered in this standard — such as

toxic vapors, hazardous materials, noise levels, heat stress, and local, state, and federal regulations (EPA and

OSHA) — should be considered in the design and operation of fluid heaters. Most causes of failures can be traced

to human error. The most significant failures include inadequate training of operators, lack of proper

maintenance, and improper application of equipment. Users and designers must utilize engineering skill to bring

together that proper combination of controls and training necessary for the safe operation of equipment. This

recommended practice classifies fluid heaters as Class F fluid heaters. Class F fluid heaters operate at

approximately atmospheric pressure and present a potential explosion or fire hazard that could be occasioned by

the overheating and/or release of flammable or combustible fluids from the tubing that carries them through the

heating chamber. Class F fluid heaters operate with a relatively constant flow of…

Addenda

BSR/SERI R2v3 (3.1)-202x, The Sustainable Electronics Reuse & Recycling Standard (addenda to ANSI/SERI R2-V3-2020)

With the rapidly increasing adoption of solar power globally, the quantity of photovoltaic (PV) modules is

increasing at a significant rate. Once this PV equipment reaches the end of its first use, sustainable solutions for

it’s safe and environmentally sound reuse and recycling are required. The review and revision of the R2 Standard

to include PV equipment has been completed and an addenda to the R2 Standard (Appendix G -Photovoltaic (PV)

Modules), will ensure that R2 facilities that handle PV modules identify some of the key risks associated with

processing this equipment; and R2 facilities are enabled to demonstrate their operations meet the defined R2

sustainable practices for processing PV modules; and provide generators of PV equipment insight into how it is

safely and sustainably managed. After a first round of public comments, the R2 Consensus Body made

substantial changes to the definitions and Appendix G, so a second round of public comments based on the

changes made will be initiated. The definitions and Appendix G will be available for public comment through

 our website for 45 days after publication in Standards Action,

and also be announced in SERI’s October R2 Facility Newsletter, and on SERI's social media on 10/6/23.

New Standard

BSR/AHRI Standard 1550 (SI/I-P)-202x, Performance Rating of Liquid-Chilling and Heat Pump Liquid-Heating Packages

Using the Vapor Compression Cycle (new standard)

Stakeholders: Groups and individuals known to be, or who have indicated that they are, directly and materially

affected by the standard, including manufacturers, testers, regulators and trade or professional organizations.

Project Need: The industry is moving toward new system designs to enhance efficiency and flexibility. To support the

market, the standard must include tolerances for variable flow and update standard rating conditions. Part-load

metrics also must be updated to reflect regional climate considerations. Increased interest in using vapor compression

chillers for heating drives a review of heating conditions and metrics, as well as review of scope for alignment with

related standards. The standard also needs to continue ongoing efforts to harmonize with ASHRAE Standard 30 as the

referenced method of test.

Interest Categories: Component Manufacturer, General Interest, Product Manufacturer, Testing Laboratory

AHRI Standard 1550 will supersede AHRI Standards 550/590-2023 and 551/591-2023. It has been assigned a new

standard number due to the number and magnitude of changes proposed so the distinction between the standards is

clear to the industry. The purpose of this standard is to establish for liquid-chilling and heat pump liquid-heating

packages using the vapor compression cycle: definitions; test requirements; rating requirements; minimum data

requirements for published ratings; marking and nameplate data; conversions and calculations; nomenclature; and

conformance conditions.

BSR/CSA FC 6 CSA C22.2 No. 62282-2-100-202x, Fuel cell technologies - Part 2-100: Fuel cell modules - Safety (IEC

62282-2-100:2020, MOD) (national adoption of IEC 62282-2-100 with modifications and revision of ANSI/CSA FC 6-2018)

Stakeholders: Consumers, manufacturers, regulators, and users.

Project Need: The development of this standard will support the safe deployment and the use of product which

utilize fuel cell and water electrolysis modules. This conformity assessment standard will be updated to include

technology advancement since the previous edition, CSA/ANSI FC 6. It will meet the strategic needs of the following

key interests: a) ensuring that the latest innovative/technology/safety features are available for users, b) addressing

needs of regulators by providing suitable requirements; and c) supporting certification bodies.

Interest Categories: Consumers, manufacturers, regulators, and users.

This part of IEC 62282 provides safety related requirements for construction, operation under normal and abnormal

conditions and the testing of fuel cell and water electrolysis modules. It applies to fuel cell and water electrolysis

modules with the following electrolyte chemistry: alkaline; polymer electrolyte (including direct methanol fuel cells);

phosphoric acid; molten carbonate; solid oxide; aqueous solution of salts. Fuel cell and water electrolysis modules

modules can be provided with or without an enclosure and can be operated at significant pressurization levels or

close to ambient pressure. This document deals with conditions that can yield hazards to persons and cause damage

outside the fuel cell and water electrolysis modules. Protection against damage inside the fuel cell and water

electrolysis modules are not addressed in this document, provided it does not lead to hazards outside the module.

These requirements can be superseded by other standards for equipment containing fuel cell modules or water

electrolysis modules as required for particular applications. This document does not cover fuel cell road vehicle

applications. The fuel cell modules and water electrolysis modules are components of final products. These products

require evaluation according to appropriate end-product safety requirements

This addendum (2nd PPR ISC) aligns with the requirements proposed for EPD disclosure in Addendum z. The

requirements include a minimum number of procured products to meet GWP limits set at 125% of the industrywide

EPD average. Projects can comply by providing an EPD or LCA for each building product that show the

product’s GWP is less than 125% of the industry average for cradle-to-gate production. This addendum provides

the environmental benefit of lowering GHG emissions through the selection of building products with lower GWP.

BSR/ASHRAE/ICC/IES/USGBC Addendum ba to BSR/ASHRAE/ICC/IES/USGBC Standard 189.1-202x, Standard

for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (addenda to

ANSI/ASHRAE/ICC/IES/USGBC Standard 189.1-2020)

This Addendum revises the definition of potable water to match the definition in the International Plumbing Code.

The change will avoid confusion by excluding natural freshwater sources that are not considered “potable” under

most common definitions. These changes are not expected to add cost to the standard.

BSR/NFPA 4-202x, Standard for Integrated Fire Protection and Life Safety System Testing (revision of ANSI/NFPA 4-2021)

The standard shall provide the minimum requirements for testing of integrated fire protection and life safety

systems where such testing is required by the design documents, commissioning plan, governing laws, codes,

regulations, or standards. A. These requirements include protocol for testing procedures, responsibilities of

various parties, methods and documentation for verifying the operational readiness and sequence of integrated

systems. The standard is designed to ensure that interconnected active and passive fire protection and life safety

systems operate as intended. It is not the intent of this standard to require implementation of emergency

response procedures, evacuation drills, or other exercises that require facility staff or fire department response.

However, when integrated systems tests are being conducted, it can be an appropriate opportunity to practice

emergency procedures or drills. This standard does not prohibit the owner of the property, building, or individual

system or the owner’s designated representative from requiring integrated system testing by design or contract

documents. For some buildings, the integrated system testing requirements of NFPA 4 can be considered

satisfied by performing the acceptance tests and the inspection, testing, and maintenance required by the NFPA

standards for the systems in a building.

BSR/ASCE/CI 67-202x, Schedule Delay Analysis (revision of ANSI/ASCE/CI 67-2017)

Stakeholders: Users of the standard could include owners, contractors, subcontractors, and consultants who deal with schedule delay claims.

Project Need: This standard guideline is needed to help minimize the transactional cost of dispute by eliminating the disagreement over method with a set of guidelines or principles that apply in all situations.

Interest Categories: Consumer, Producer, General Interest, Regulatory, and Associate Non-Voting Members.

Scope: The 35 guidelines in this standard allow for segmentation of responsibility for delay to intermediary milestones and to the project completion date. They also enable delay damages or liquidated damages to be calculated by utilizing critical path method schedule techniques and preparing a schedule delay analysis. The guidelines in this standard are based on principles of schedule delay analysis in the following categories: Critical path, Float, Early completion, Chronology of delay, Concurrent delay, Responsibility for delay, Changing schedules after the fact, and Acceleration. The application of such principles should be based on the terms of the contract, contract administration, consistency in application, and legal precedent. These standard guidelines provide commentary, support for, and explanations of this ASCE standard committee’s list of guidelines.

1.3 These requirements do not cover any wire, cable, or cord types that are presently covered in the National Electrical Code (NEC), NFPA 70, and are not intended for installation in buildings or structures in accordance with the NEC except within the scope of the installation instructions of the end-product for which their use is intended.

1.4 These requirements cover appliance wiring material with operating temperatures from a minimum 60°C (140°F) dry temperature rating and voltage ratings from a minimum 30-volt rating. Conductor size ranges from 50 AWG to 2000 kcmil. Appliance wiring material (AWM) composed entirely of optical fiber members or electrical conductors in combination with optical fiber members are also covered by these requirements.

1.5 These requirements do not cover the optical performance of any optical-fiber member or group of such members.

1.6 These requirements do not cover constructions which utilize flat, insulated conductors that are not laid parallel. The requirements for these products are found in the Standard for Flexible Materials Interconnect Constructions, UL 796F.

1.7 The evaluation of the performance of the semi-conductive polymeric layer described in 5.9 is not covered by this Standard.

1.8 In addition to these constructions, this Standard establishes guidelines for the evaluation of special constructions that, due to their specific end product use, are not required to meet all of the requirements for general construction AWM. 1.9 The final acceptance of AWM is dependent upon its use in complete equipment that conforms with the standards applicable to such equipment.

New Standard

BSR/UL 9990-202x, Standard for Safety for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Power Cables (new standard)

Stakeholders: Cable assembly manufacturers and distributors, commercial and Industrial users, consumers.

Project Need: This first proposed edition of UL 9990 Standard for Safety for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Power Cables expands on of the Outline of Investigation for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Power Cables, UL 9990, dated September 27, 2021, which includes requirements for cable assemblies used in circuits that are in the Extended Power Range. Additionally, the goal is to convert the Outline into an ANSl Standard, since Outlines of Investigation cannot be referenced in other ANSI Standards. Interest Categories: Producers, Supply Chain, Commercial/Industrial Users, Authorities Having Jurisdiction, Government Agencies, Consumers.

Scope: This Outline of Investigation covers the power handling capabilities of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) cable assemblies when used for powering or charging Audio/Video, Information, and Communication Technology Equipment applications. This does not include Power Over Ethernet cables that are permanently installed to power equipment installed on the network. The signal transmission performance of the cable assemblies is not within the scope of these requirements.

1.2 These requirements apply to ICT cable assemblies categorized below, Type designations used in this Outline only serve as a guide to determine appropriate requirements, and do not represent an assigned rating. (a)Type I: These cable assemblies are intended to be used only in the output of a power source class 2 (PS2) and electrical energy source class 1 (ES1), or a limited power source, as determined in accordance with the Standard for Safety for Audio/Video, Information, and Communication Technology Equipment – Part 1: Safety Requirements, UL 62368-1. These circuits do not exceed 60 V DC, 8.0 amperes and 100 watts. Note: These circuits are sometimes referred to as "low voltage, limited-power circuits", "low voltage, limited-energy circuits” or "NEC® Class 2 circuits". (b) Type II: These cable assemblies are intended to be used in the output of a power source that exceeds the limits for Type I and provide powering or charging for connected equipment that do not exceed 60 V DC, 8.0 amperes and power limits over 100 watts and up to and including 250 watts. These cable assemblies contain an electronic circuit to implement power delivery synchronization (handshaking) with the power source before permitting over 100 W of power. NOTE: These circuits are sometimes referred to as ES1 (< 60Vdc >) and PS3 (>100VA) 1.3 ICT cable assemblies may also be required to comply with industry specifications applicable to their particular configuration and use. Compliance with these specifications is not within the scope of these requirements.

BSR/ASHRAE/ICC/IES/USGBC Addendum aa to BSR/ASHRAE/ICC/IES/USGBC Standard 189.1-202x, Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (addenda to

ANSI/ASHRAE/ICC/IES/USGBC Standard 189.1-2020)

This addendum improves the charging language of the Irrigation Section 6.3.1.1. It specifies terms for irrigated landscape during the initial establishment period. Exceptions for this were also edited. This addendum also removes Section 6.3.1.2 because it did not provide the intended requirements. The lettered sections ‘a-d’ of former 6.3.1.2 are then assumed under the revised section 6.3.1.1 and still apply. All other subsequent sections are then renumbered after Section 6.3.1.1.

This addendum revises the current requirement for the submittal of environmental product declarations within

Standard 189.1 to be mandatory for products meeting specific criteria. The section includes a new requirement for reporting the global warming potential contribution for those products within the building project. This addendum also removes UL100 from the list of third-party multi attribute certifications in Section 9.5.1.4 because UL has withdrawn the standard without replacement and discontinued subscriptions.

Addenda

BSR/ASHRAE Addendum v to BSR/ASHRAE Standard 15-202x, Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems

(Addenda to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 15-2019)

A continuous maintenance proposal was submitted to clean up the definitions of brazed and soldered joints.

This is in part due to an existing gap in the current definitions that exists between 800°F (426.5°C) and

1000°F (537.7°C). This proposed change harmonizes with definitions found in both ISO 4063:2009 and

ANSI/AWS A3.0MM/A3.0:2020.

BSR/ASHRAE Addendum w to BSR/ASHRAE Standard 15-202x, Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems

(addenda to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 15-2019)

Addendum j to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 15-2019 revised the definitions of “flammable” and “nonflammable”

with the flammability classification class numbers from ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 34, Designation and Safety

Classification of Refrigerants. That change will create an inconsistency within the next edition of the standard,

where previously all other content within the standard made use of the safety group (a combination of both

toxicity and flammability classifications) but did not make direct use of the toxicity classification alone nor the

flammability classification alone. Section 6 explains how refrigerant safety classifications are used within

Standard 15, but currently only describes the use of safety groups and not the individual classifications. The proposed changes resolve this inconsistency.

Revision

BSR/VITA 48.8-202x, Mechanical Standard for VPX REDI Air Flow through Cooling, 1.0 to 1.5 Pitches (revision of ANSI/VITA 48.8-2017)

Stakeholders: Manufacturers, system integrators, end users of critical embedded systems

Project Need: Develop standard implementation for air-flow-through for critical embedded modules

Interest Categories: Users, producers, general Interest

Scope: This document describes an open standard for the design requirements for an air-flow-through cooled

plug-in module having 3U and 6U form factors while retaining the VITA 46.0 connector layout. Unlike using cooling

air impinged directly upon the components and circuit boards, this plug-in module uses a finned heat exchanger

frame located within the central section of the assembly to top cool primary circuit board components as well as

mezzanine board components. Both 3U and 6U standard form factors are offered using 3 defined pitch spacings,

with options to have alternate air flow intake and exhaust paths. The plug-in modules of this standard exhibit a

weight reduction and cost savings by eliminating both wedge retainer usage and module lever usage by way of

using light weight jack screws for plug-in module insertion and extraction into a subrack chassis. The intention of

this standard is to optimize SWAP-C (Size, Weight, Power, Cost). This revision updates the backplane tab

dimensions, thickness, jackscrew and guide pins.

BSR/ASHRAE Addendum 62.1i-202x, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality (addenda to ANSI/ASHRAE

Standard 62.1-2019)

ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170 in its 2021 version has added Table 8-2 which covers low-infection-risk

outpatient facilities. Table 8-2 lists Ra and Rp values for spaces in outpatient facilities that are also shown in

ASHRAE 62.1-2019. This proposed addendum aims at coordination of the two standards by deleting the

outpatient spaces from Table 6-1. However, building codes (e.g., IMC) still do not reference ASHRAE/ASHE

Standard 170 for Business Occupancy (B) Outpatient facilities. For this reason, the spaces deleted from Table

6-1 are now added to a normative appendix to provide AHJs with Ra and Rp values for outpatient facilities not

covered by Standard 170. In addition, some ventilation rates and air classifications have been aligned with

ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170.

Addendum ac proposes updates to interior lighting power and control requirements. A major change under

review has been the removal of parking garage daylight transition lighting from the exempted requirements.

Since the first public review, additional changes have been suggested by commenters to refine the definition

of parking-garage daylight transition zone. Additionally, commenters have helped develop more precise

language for the video broadcasting category seen in this ISC.

This addendum introduces a new option for lighting compliance. Currently users can choose from three

prescriptive options or a modeling-based method; this alternate path would allow a performance approach

that is not dependent on meeting each of the prescriptive requirements in Section 9. This 2nd public review

ISC addresses public review comments regarding conflict of mandatory lighting control and exterior lighting

requirements. It also updates the header in Table 3.5-1 to correct column label acronyms.

This addendum proposes new requirements for lighting used within indoor plant-growth facilities using a new

metric, photosynthetic photon efficacy (PPE), developed by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological

Engineers (ASABE) for the ANSI/ASABE S640 standard. This ISC modifies the first public review draft to

enable the use of luminaires with removable and/or serviceable lamps; it also improves upon the definitions

of “greenhouse” and “indoor grow,” lowers the stringency for smaller indoor grow facilities, and removes

daylight control requirements.

Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (addenda to ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2019)

This addendum updates the Building Performance Factors (BPFs) that are used for determining compliance

with Appendix G (see Section 4.2.1.1.) The current BPFs represent the savings of a design minimally

compliant with the current edition of Standard 90.1 compared to a design compliant with Standard 90.1

-2004. The updated BPFs were determined using prototype energy models developed by PNNL to be

consistent with Appendix G baseline rules; an additional factor was then applied across the resulting BPFs in

anticipation of further energy improvements before the final 2022 publication.

Addendum ce adds a reference standard (ANSI/AISI/COFS S250) to support changes to the envelope

provisions related to steel-framed walls. This addition enables the use of steel-framed walls with framing

spacing between 6 to 24 inches and a wider range of member sizes, which eliminates the need to take an

alternate approach for obtaining approvals. ANSI/AISI/COFS S250 also provides a means for evaluating wall

assemblies wherein all insulation is located outside the wall cavity.

Project Initiation Notification System (PINS)

ANSI Procedures require notification of ANSI by ANSI-accredited standards developers (ASD) of the initiation and scope of activities expected to result in new or revised American National Standards (ANS). Early notification of activity intended to reaffirm or withdraw an ANS and in some instances a PINS related to a national adoption is optional. The mechanism by which such notification is given is referred to as the PINS process. For additional information, see clause 2.4 of the ANSI Essential

Requirements: Due Process Requirements for American National Standards.

Following is a list of proposed actions and new ANS that have been received recently from ASDs. Please also review the section in

Standards Action entitled "American National Standards Maintained Under Continuous Maintenance" for additional or comparable information with regard to standards maintained under the continuous maintenance option. Use the following Public Document Library url to access PDF & EXCEL reports of approved & proposed ANS: List of Approved and Proposed ANS

New Standard

BSR C137.10-202X, Standard for Lighting Systems - Sensor Data Models (new standard)

Stakeholders: Producers, users, general interest.

Project Need: This project is needed to enable lighting systems, locally and centrally, to receive sensor information from a variety of independent sensors and take actions which may include, but are not limited to, optimization of light levels and backhaul of sensor data to the CMS for adjacent applications. This project will standardize the data which sensors make available to NLCs to encourage interface with multiple sensor types. Devices that include both an NLC and sensing functionality are not included in the scope of this standard because intra-device communication will not benefit, and the device would be burdened by these additional requirements. This is an important distinction to avoid market and regulatory confusions.

Scope: This standard defines the data model for sensors (focused on but not limited to outdoor) to present to

Network Lighting Controllers (NLC). This standard will leverage existing sensor data models published by other standards organizations, such as Open Mobile Alliance, Digital Illumination Interface Alliance (DiiA) and TALQ. This standard does not apply to the internal communications of NLC-integrated devices or by what protocol the data is transported from the sensor to NLC or from NLC to CMS.

Project Initiation Notification System (PINS)
ANSI Procedures require notification of ANSI by ANSI-accredited standards developers (ASD) of the initiation and scope of activities expected to result in new or revised American National Standards (ANS). Early notification of activity intended to reaffirm or withdraw an ANS and in some instances a PINS related to a national adoption is optional. The mechanism by which such notification is given is referred to as the PINS process. For additional information, see clause 2.4 of the ANSI Essential Requirements: Due Process Requirements for American National Standards.
Following is a list of proposed actions and new ANS that have been received recently from ASDs. Please also review the section in Standards Action entitled "American National Standards Maintained Under Continuous Maintenance" for additional or comparable information with regard to standards maintained under the continuous maintenance option.

Particular Requirements for Beauty Care Appliances Incorporating Lasers and Intense Light Sources (national adoption with modifications of IEC 60335-2-113)
Stakeholders: Producers of beauty-care appliances incorporating lasers or intense light sources for household and similar purposes; Component producers and supply chain of beauty-care appliances incorporating lasers or intense light sources for household and similar purposes; Retailers; Consumers; Trade Associations; Government.
Project Need: To provide an ANSI-approved standard, UL 60335-2-113, adopting IEC 60335-2-113 with modifications, which contains requirements for beauty-care appliances incorporating lasers or intense light sources for household and similar purposes. This standard will support the request from industry for UL to harmonize with IEC 60335-2-113 and international certification programs. This harmonized standard will also mitigate hazards and ensure latest innovative/technology/safety features for these particular beauty-care appliances.
Scope: This International Standard deals with the safety of beauty care appliances incorporating lasers or intense light sources for household and similar purposes, where their operation relies on contact with the skin, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V.
NOTE 101. Battery-operated appliances and other d.c.-supplied appliances are within the scope of this standard. Dual supply appliances, either mains-supplied or battery-operated, are regarded as battery-operated appliances when operated in the battery mode. This standard covers appliances with a light emitting surface less than 25 cm2.
Appliances not intended for normal household use but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public such as appliances intended to be used in beauty salons and similar premises are also within the scope of this standard. Appliances covered by the scope of this standard include but are not limited to: appliances for control of hair growth; appliances for skin and beauty care incorporating lasers or intense light sources (ILS).
NOTE 102. Appliances incorporating lasers or intense light sources (ILS) either heat up hair follicles or skin tissue to produce thermal effects or to produce photo-biological effects from specific wavelengths.

Stakeholders: Product users, manufacturers, EMC test laboratories and test technicians, EMC test equipment manufacturers, EMC laboratory accreditation bodies and assessors who may have to assess test plans that reference this guidance document.
Project Need: Modifications are needed in the Guide that are not contained in other work. It should reflect new contributions from recent experience in the field.
Scope: The document provides unique guidance on ESD test methods, test point selection, documentation, and reporting not readily available from other sources. Discussions on humidity, atmospheric pressure, simulator differences, bleed resistors, and approach speed are included.

New Standard
BSR/NEMA ES 80008-202x, Battery Recyclability Standard (new standard)
Stakeholders: Manufacturers, utilities, end users, environmental groups.
Project Need: While many developers and users are gaining experience deploying and operating grid-connected energy storage systems (ESS), there is no standardized approach to manage end-of-life protocols. While stakeholders in the electric vehicle (EV) market are further down the path towards a solution, the sheer magnitude of EV batteries meeting their end-of-life in the next 20 years (and beyond) calls for a standardized end-of-life solution
Scope: Standard methodology to define the amount of recyclable material at the end of battery life (Recyclability Standard). Applicable to EV, residential, commercial and industrial, and utility scale batteries, the standard will establish the “recyclability” of any lithium battery in scope, resulting in threshold amounts of extractable metals from
each cell and modules and plastics used throughout the module.

Stakeholders: Cable Telecommunications industry.
Project Need: Create new standard.
Scope: This document recommends mechanical, environmental, and electrical standards for broadband radio frequency (RF) amplifiers that support DOCSIS 4.0 FDD (Frequency Division Duplex) capabilities, with downstream operation at frequencies up to 1794 MHz and upstream operation at frequencies up to 684 MHz. Products covered by this document include the high-gain single and multiport amplifiers required to support drop-in upgrades at legacy amplifier locations, as well as the lower gain booster amplifiers that may be required between amplifier locations with very long spacings. The devices are intended for an outdoor rated environment. This document does not cover amplifiers with echo cancellation (required to support FDX), amplifiers used in nodes (commonly referred to as launch amplifiers), or other variations of low-gain amplifiers that may be required for a full Distributed Gain Amplifier (DGA) architecture.

Project Need: Address inconsistencies in testing setup, procedures, and provide guidance on test variables, instrumentation placement, and attachment methods. Scope: This Standard covers the minimum vibration withstand capability and vibration test methods for roadway and area luminaires. This Standard is not intended to address natural or catastrophic disasters.

NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association)1300 North 17th Street, Suite 900, Rosslyn, VA 22209 www.nema.orgContact: Paul Orr; pau_orr@nema.org New Standard BSR/NEMA CP-80006-202x, Standard for DC Capacitors (new standard)Stakeholders: Capacitor manufacturers, utilities, building engineers, government, and academia. Project Need: Increase in use of DC. Scope: This standard applies to conventional DC capacitors (film foil oil) for HVDC-DC filter applications. This Standard will also be applicable to other applications where the capacitor unit(s) or bank(s) are exposed to a substantial direct voltage such as, for example, neutral bus capacitors.

NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association)1300 North 17th Street, Suite 900, Rosslyn, VA 22209 www.nema.orgContact: Paul Orr; pau_orr@nema.org New Standard BSR/NEMA TP 80002-202x, Standard for Medium Voltage Transformers with Converter/Inverter Configuration and/or Rectifier Transformers to Minimize Line Losses (new standard)Stakeholders: Transformer manufacturers, building engineers, developers and consultants, Government and Academia, Renewable Energy Planners. Project Need: Facilitation of renewable energy projects. Scope: Grid planners are more frequently connecting load centers, such as small towns/cities, with MV DC connections to facilitate greater power flow control and facilitate renewable penetration. The links are generally in the 24-36kV range. This architecture requires transformers to be installed on the AC sides of the links, so use of an inverter and converter is necessary, which risks energy losses through the inversion/conversion. This Standard is intended to provide guidance for those medium voltage transformers with converter/inverter configuration and/or rectifier transformers to minimize line losses.

NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association)1300 North 17th Street, Suite 900, Rosslyn, VA 22209 www.nema.orgContact: Paul Orr; pau_orr@nema.org New Standard BSR/NEMA TP 80003-202x, Standard for Medium Voltage DC Transformers (Eliminating the Need for Power Conversion) (new standard) Stakeholders: Transformer manufacturers, building engineers, developers and consultants, governments and academia, electric utilities. Project Need: Increased prevalence of DC power usage. Scope: Grid planners are more frequently connecting load centers such as small towns/cities with Medium Voltage DC connections to facilitate greater power flow control and facilitate renewable penetration. The links are generally in the 24-36 kV range. As research continues on solid-state transformers, the industry moves closer to eventual widespread use of these devices to safely integrate renewable generation into the grid at proper voltages and frequencies. With power electronics included within the transformer, external power conversion would not be needed. These requirements would cover medium voltage DC transformers (eliminating the need for power conversion).

Project Need: Transformer needs due to increasing DC applications. Scope: Grid planners are more frequently connecting load centers such as small towns/cities with MV DC connections to facilitate greater power flow control and facilitate renewable penetration. The links are generally in the 24-36 k V range. This architecture requires transformers to be installed on the AC sides of the links, so use of an inverter and converter is necessary, which risks energy losses through the inversion/conversion. This standard is for medium voltage solid-state transformers to minimize line losses through power conversion and/or actively regulate voltage and current from renewable generation.

NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association)1300 North 17th Street, Suite 900, Rosslyn, VA 22209 www.nema.orgContact: Paul Orr; pau_orr@nema.org New Standard BSR/NEMA TP 80005-202x, Standard for Nameplate Specification of kVA Ratings at 65 degree C Rise and an 85 degree C Rise in Liquid-Immersed Transformers (new standard)Stakeholders: Transformer manufacturers, electric utilities, building engineers, developers and consultants ,government and acadmia. Project Need: Increased customer loads due to electric vehicle and electric heating. Scope: Projections for increased customer loads (largely due to forecasted growth in electric vehicles and electric heating) will likely require higher voltage/current ratings on transformers. Utilities can approach this challenge in several different ways, one of which is to purchase and install new transformers designed with higher thermal insulations and/or new insulation liquids to achieve higher voltage/current ratings at the same size and weight as their predecessors. These transformers using advanced insulation technologies could operate at higher temperatures(i.e., to accommodate the higher ratings). A dual kVA nameplate based on two different temperature rise parameters would be beneficial in this application

ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc.)180 Technology Parkway, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092 | e: etoto@ashrae.org, w: www.ashrae.orgAddendaBSR/ASHRAE/IES Addendum ag to BSR/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-202x, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (addenda to ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2019)This addendum adds an optional Mechanical System Performance path that allows HVAC system efficiency tradeoffs. It has the potential to be expanded in the future to include service water heating systems in Section 7 and allow heat recovery efficiency to be credited. The intent is to provide an alternative to a completely prescriptive-based approach to 90.1compliance that does not require whole-building energy modeling. To ensure that equivalent energy savings are maintained compared to the current requirements, a new metric is also being introduced for evaluating HVAC system sunder the new performance path: the Total System Performance Ratio (TSPR). This new Mechanical System Performance path and metric is explained through additions to Section 6 as well as a new Appendix J.

It is the responsibility of the building owner and/or operator to assure compliance with all regulations applicable within the jurisdiction. This Standard does not address: fumigation and insecticidal fogging, ozone-generating air-cleaning devices, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI)exposure from air-cleaning devices, nor exposure limits for hydrofluoroalkane (HFA-134a). This Standard does not address cannabis-related biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs). These BVOCs include thiols as part of their natural biological cycles. The prominent VOCs emitted by cannabis are known as terpenes with main constituents as isoprene, monoterpenes, and sesquiterpenes. These terpenes are odorants with extremely low odor thresholds. At the time of this publication, the STP is not aware of any evidence that suggests health hazards are related to cannabis BVOC emissions at the typically observed concentrations.

Description:

Scope

Development of definitions and methods of measurement of electromagnetic noise and signal strengths (radiated and conducted), determination of levels of signal strength, levels of unwanted sources, limiting ratio of noise (and/or unwanted sources) to signals and development of methods of control of, and guidelines for influence, coupling and immunity. Where subjects dealt with overlap with those of other national committees, appropriate liaison will be established.

To accomplish the above activities, C63® develops electromagnetic compatibility standards documents which via its secretariat publishes, archives and sells these standards to the general public.

Project Need: This standard needs to be updated to address a conflict that exists with a revision that was incorporated in the 2020 edition of NFPA 70, the National Electrical Code. Consideration will be given to include calculation guidance for the voltage drop on the 0-10 volt dimming interface as a function of wiring distance. Scope: This Standard specifies the 0-10 volt control interface method and performance requirements for dimmable LED drivers, fluorescent ballasts, and dimming control units where output power is adjustable between minimum/off and maximum via a control input signal. The interface may be from one or more control units to one or more drivers or ballasts. Applications include, but are not limited to, commercial, residential, industrial, roadway and area, and hospitality. Applicable devices include, but are not limited to, dimmable drivers and ballasts that may be internal or external to luminaires, dimming controls, and daylighting controls. This Standard does not specify control by pulse-width modulation (PWM). Project Initiation Notification System (PINS)ANSI Standards Action - May 14, 2021 - Page 10 of 76 pages

 

UL (Underwriters Laboratories)333 Pfingsten Road, Northbrook, IL 60062 https://ul.org/Contact: Elizabeth Northcott; Elizabeth.Northcott@ul.org New Standard BSR/UL 8801-202x, Standard for Safety for PV (Photovoltaic) Luminaire Systems (new standard) Stakeholders: Lighting Equipment and System manufacturers, PV Luminaire Systems manufacturers, users and consumers of lighting and PV luminaires and systems. Project Need: To establish requirements for the safe interoperability of devices that generate, store, and consume electricity to provide illumination independent of the normal utility grid. There are fire risks associated with the heat that may be generated by these systems, if not properly designed or produced with sufficient quality control. There can also be electric shock injury risks if designs exceed the voltage limits proposed by these requirements, and such exceedances do not appear necessary for these systems to achieve their desired functionality. Establishing a standard to reduce and eliminate these risks will promote public trust and confidence, thus aiding acceptance and deployment. Scope: The requirements in this proposed new standard apply to lighting systems that include one or more PV (photovoltaic) modules, storage batteries, one or more luminaires, and controls to manage the energy flow between these devices. They are not interactive with the utility grid and do not supply power to remote equipment. They can be fixed-in-place or portable, but are not handheld devices (i.e., flashlights or lanterns). They are intended to be installed in accordance with the U.S. National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70 and in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I (CEC), CSA C22.1

Revision BSR C63.2-202x, Standard for Specifications of Electromagnetic Interference and Field Strength Measuring Instrumentation in the Frequency Range 9 kHz to 40 GHz (revision of ANSI C63.2-2016)

Stakeholders: All users of the ANSI C63.4, C63.10, and C63.26 standards, including test labs, radio manufacturers, electronics manufacturers, test equipment manufacturers, regulators and accreditation bodies.

Project Need: CISPR 16-1-1:2010 is a key reference document for ANSI C63.2. CISPR 16-1-1:2010 has been updated twice since 2010 Ed. 3.2: 2014 reference (Ed. 4: 2015 and Ed.5: 2019). This proposal recommends updating the CISPR16-1-1 reference in ANSI C63.2 to CISPR 16-1-1:2019 (Ed. 5). Also, CISPR 16-1-1:2019 reorganized several sections and added material from ANSI C63.2-2016. This reorganization and the added parameter would need to be accounted for in C63.2-2016 Tables 1 and 2. Members of the EMI test community that reference C63.2 when purchasing equipment will question the reference to an obsolete CISPR document and there is increasing risk of divergence of receiver requirements between CISPR and ANSI.

Scope: C63.2 specifies measurement equipment requirements for ANSI emissions measurement documents
