The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers' (ASHRAE) residential ventilation standard.

ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2 is the only nationally recognized indoor air quality standard developed solely for residences, according to ASHRAE.

The approval means the ANSI Board of Standards Review has determined that the standard met the consensus requirements set by the accrediting standards-writing organization. The standard will carry ANSI in its title.

"This approval from ANSI illustrates industry acceptance for 62.2," ASHRAE President Richard Rooley, said in a written statement. "ANSI's approval means that ASHRAE has successfully demonstrated that we complied with ANSI procedures, which include their 'cardinal principles' of openness, balance, due process and consensus, in the development of the standard."

The standard is intended for use by code bodies with many of the requirements already existing in one or more codes. It may be applied to new or existing houses. The standard provides the minimum requirements necessary to achieve acceptable indoor air quality for dwellings.

ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is an international organization of 55,000 persons. According to the organization, its sole objective is to advance through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration to serve the evolving needs of the public.
