ASHRAE has launched an updated and improved online standards review database that allows members and non-members access to public review drafts for standards, guidelines, and addenda and to submit comments.
“The online standards review database has been updated to provide greater functionality than our previous system,” says Jeff Littleton, ASHRAE executive vice president. “The new system improves efficiency for staff and volunteers by providing information in a faster and a more meaningful way. We’re excited to present such a well-integrated database to our standards development community.”
The new system offers a single sign-in feature, keeping the user logged in if already logged into ashrae.org, and a new dashboard, to easily access and highlight those items that require attention. The dashboard provides quick links to individual and committee comments, committee responses to comments, continuous maintenance proposals, and outstanding ballots.
Additional features of the improved database include:
“We’re pleased to bring this improved innovative tool to our members and nonmembers alike,” says 2018-19 ASHRAE president Sheila J. Hayter. “This updated database will be an invaluable resource toward ensuring that ASHRAE’s rigorous examination of standards is strengthened.”
