The revised 2019 edition of the standardincludes significant changes, including:
- New informative tables of ventilation rates per unit areafor checking new and existing buildings ventilation calculations
- Simplified version of the Ventilation Rate Procedureimproving calculations for system ventilation efficiency and zone airdistribution effectiveness
- Modified Natural Ventilation Procedure calculationmethodology
- Revised scope to specifically identify occupanciespreviously not covered
- Natural ventilation now requires considering the quality ofthe outdoor air and interaction of the outdoor air with mechanically cooledspaces.
- Humidity control requirements are now expressed as dew pointand not as relative humidity.
