ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) will hold a seminar titled "How to Comply with ASHRAE 62.1-2004" as part of the association's 2005 Winter Meeting. The seminar, which will be held Feb. 9 in Orlando, Fla., will feature an overview of the requirements of the 2004 standard with emphasis on the new requirements.

"We will walk through the entire standard one section at a time to enable users to better understand the changes that have occurred and the rationale behind those changes," said Eli Howard, who will chair the seminar. "This seminar will enable a better understanding of the standard and guidance for applying it to their designs."

Andy Persily, Ph.D., National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, Md., will provide an introduction and overview of the standard. He will discuss the outdoor air quality assessment, the indoor air quality procedure, and appendices (normative vs. informative).

Also at the meeting, Steven Emmerich will chair a seminar on ASHRAE Standard 62.2. "What's New with Standard 62.2" will be held from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 6.
