ASHRAE consists of 57,000 local, regional, and international engineers throughout the world. These like-minded engineers join together at the levels both in-person and online. ASHRAE writes standards for the purpose of establishing consensus for methods of test for use in commerce and performance criteria for use as facilitators with which to guide the industry. ASHRAE publishes voluntary consensus standards: Method of Measurement or Test, Standard Design and Standard Practice. ASHRAE does not write rating standards unless a suitable rating standard will not otherwise be available. Consensus standards are developed and published to define minimum values or acceptable performance, whereas other documents, such as design guides, may be developed and published to encourage enhanced performance. ASHRAE is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and follows ANSI’s requirements for due process and standards development.
