Standards and Guidelines

Guidance Description
EuroventEurovent is Europe's Industry Association for Indoor Climate, Process Cooling, and Food Cold Chain Technologies. Its members from throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa represent more than 1.000 companies, the majority small and medium-sized manufacturers. Guidelines include life cycle costs for Air Handling Units and related components.
CIBSECIBSE is the standard setter and authority on building services engineering in the UK. It publishes the CIBSE Guides, Codes and other guidance material which are internationally recognised as authoritative, and sets the criteria for best practice in the profession.
WELL Building StandardThe WELL Building Standard marries best practices in design and construction with evidence-based health and wellness interventions. It harnesses the built environment as a vehicle to support human health, well-being and comfort. This is achieved in part by implementing strategies, programs and technologies designed to encourage healthy, more active lifestyles and reducing occupant exposure to harmful chemicals and pollutants.
HTM03-01Health Technical Memorandum guidance for ventilation design within NHS (and private) Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities.
HBNHealth Building Notes give best practice guidance on the design and planning of new healthcare buildings and on the adaptation / extension of existing facilities. They provide information to support the briefing and design processes for individual projects in the NHS building program.
WHO 2010World Health Organisation Guideline for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ): The World Health Organisation guidelines applies where PM concentrations exceed the WHO guidelines by a factor of greater than 1,5 (annual mean for PM2,5 > 15 μg/m3 and PM10 > 30 μg/m3). The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the World Health Organization (WHO), classified diesel engine exhaust as carcinogenic to humans (Group 1), based on sufficient evidence that exposure is associated with an increased risk for lung cancer.
BESAThe Building Engineering Services Association, until 2012 the Heating and Ventilating Contractors' Association, is the main UK trade association for companies that design, install, commission and maintain heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration and related engineering projects.
BSRIABuildings Services Research and Information Association is a UK-based testing, instrumentation, research and consultancy organisation, providing specialist services in construction and building services engineering.
