International Energy Conservation Code

From our vantage the International Energy Conservation Code is one of the most widely studied codes in the land; driven by fierce economic and political agendas. Hearings on proposals begin April 28 - May 8 in Albuquerque. We encourage facility executives to fund the attendance by front line staff who have deep expertise in reconciling the competing requirements of safety and sustainability. @IEEECampus #StandardsNewMexico

Electric Vehicle Charging Proposals

We want to give electrical vehicle infrastructure safety and sustainability concepts a fair hearing.  The education industry is the locus of a hopeful  and ambitious generation of young people who want to contribute to the green agenda and to the electrotechnical transformation we call the emergent #SmartCampus. #StandardsNewMexico StandardsMichigan

Life Safety Code

You will find NFPA 101 at the foundation of almost all local and state public safety laws. It is widely incorporated by reference into public safety consensus documents of other code and standards developers.   We find that a number of proposals directed at prevention and mitigation of active shooter incidents are tracking in the 2021 revision.

Standards Idaho

During 2019 we are rolling out our user-interest advocacy platform to school districts, colleges, universities and university-affiliated healthcare systems in all 50-states. To lower #TotalCostofOwnership for the emergent #SmartCampus every state will have to be managed according to its history, culture, governance regime, asset-base and network of expertise. #StandardsIdaho

Fire Protection for Laboratories Using Chemicals

Research universities are the source of almost all new knowledge. This document sets the standard for keeping the facilities needed to discover new knowledge safe and sustainable. There are six other universities identified as USER-INTERESTS so we do not lean too much into it; assuming these organizations are strong voices for risk-rationalization. Still we at least follow it.

Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality

The ASHRAE committee writing standards for ventilation and indoor air quality has released 3 new addenda for public review.  Proposed changes are important because they are referenced into ASHRAE 90.1 -- Energy Standard for Buildings -- and ASHRAE 90.1 is referenced into federal, state and local energy conservation laws.

National Electrical Safety Code

This IEEE "regulatory product" sets the standard of care for construction, operation and maintenance of power and telecommunication infrastructure and overlaps in significant areas with the National Electrical Code, a regulatory product developed by the National Fire Protection Association. We advocate in the NESC and collaborate closely with the IEEE Education & Healthcare Facilities Committee. [Comments on next revisions are due July 1, 2020] #StandardsNewJersey

2019 Student Paper Competition

The ANSI Committee on Education hosts a paper competition every year to raise awareness about the strategic importance of standards and conformance among U.S. undergraduate and graduate students. We see this competition as a way for the next generation of technical and business leaders to understand the lament of the user-interest in the global standards system and to, perhaps, discover a remedy. [The deadline for the 2019 Student Paper Competition is April 30, 2019]
