    a3.2 DefinitionsThis addendum provides daylighting criteria in 189.1 that is consistent with the criteria in Standard 90.1-2007 with published addenda.June 26, 2010June 5, 2010June 30, 2010July 1, 2010
    b8.5.1 Daylighting SimulationThis addendum modifies daylighting definitions and criteria so the standard is consistent with what will be published in Standard 90.1-2010.June 26, 2010June 5, 2010June 30, 2010July 1, 2010
    c7.4.3 Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning;8.3.1 Indoor Air Quality; 10.3.1ConstructionThis addendum groups outdoor air definitions for easier reference. It deletes (b) and (c) in 8.3.1.1that were needed for the 30% more air requirement in previous public reviews of 189.1. The addendum does not change the requirements of the standard, because the definitions are reorganized and outdoor airflow rates are still permitted to be greater than the minimum requirements. The current definition of design outdoor airflow rate is being proposed for deletion, and the occurrences of this term in the standard are being modified to be clearer.June 25, 2011May 3, 2011June 30, 2009June 30, 2009
    d8.4 Prescriptive Option; 8.5 Performance Option; Appendix FBuilding ConcentrationsStandard 189.1-2009 references CA/DHS/EHLB/R-174 (commonly referred to as California Section 01350). In February of 2010, this document was updated, and this addendum proposes to modify the standard to update the reference to CDPH/EHLB/Standard Method V1.1 (commonly referred to as California
    Section 01350).

    eAppendix E IAQ Limit Requirements for Office Furniture Systems and SeatingThis addendum clarifies the requirements of E1.1, IAQ Limit Requirements. It corrects cited references in Section11 and adds one reference as it relates to the clarifications made in AppendixE, IAQ Limit Requirements for Office
    Furniture Systems and Seating. All requirements remain the same.

    f7.3.2 On-Site Renewable Energy Systems;7.4 Prescriptive OptionThis addendum changes to the renewable energy requirements in Standard 189.1-2009:
    • In prescriptive section7.4.1.1, On-Site Renewable Energy Systems, changes are made to the on-site renewable to be based on roof area rather than conditioned space. This results in a higher requirement for buildings more than one story than for one-story buildings.
    • In mandatory section7.3.2, On-Site Renewable Energy Systems, changes make the metric units consistent with prescriptive section. An exception is added for buildings that meet the prescriptive section.
    • In NAECA section7.4.3.1, Minimum Equipment Efficiencies, changes are made to be consistent with other sections.

    NOTICE

    INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMITTING A PROPOSED CHANGE TO
    THIS STANDARD UNDER CONTINUOUS MAINTENANCE

    This standard is maintained under continuous maintenance procedures by a Standing Standard Project Committee (SSPC) for which the Standards Committee has established a documented program for regular publication of addenda or revisions, including procedures for timely, documented, consensus action on requests for change to any part of the standard. SSPC consideration will be given to proposed changes within 13 months of receipt by the manager of standards (MOS).

    Proposed changes must be submitted to the MOS in the latest published format available from the MOS. However, the MOS may accept proposed changes in an earlier published format if the MOS concludes that the differences are immaterial to the proposed change submittal. If the MOS concludes that a current form must be utilized, the proposer may be given up to 20 additional days to resubmit the proposed changes in the current format.

    ELECTRONIC PREPARATION/SUBMISSION OF FORM
    FOR PROPOSING CHANGES

    An electronic version of each change, which must comply with the instructions in the Notice and the Form, is the preferred form of submittal to ASHRAE Headquarters at the address shown below.
