The ASHRAE public review process is designed to allow anyone to comment on

  • a standard that is being proposed, revised, or reaffirmed;
  • a proposed or revised guideline;
  • a proposed addendum to a standard; or
  • a proposed title, purpose, and scope for a standard or guideline that is being developed.

The project committee for the standard or guideline will respond to each comment unless it decides to submit a revised draft for another full public review. When public review drafts are available, they will be listed in the online comment database at the link below. Each descriptive link allows you to view and download a copy of the public review draft in PDF format.
