Second (2nd) Public Review
for Periodic Maintenance/Reaffirmation

BSR/IIAR 7-201x
Developing Operating Procedures for Closed-Circuit Ammonia Refrigeration Systems

Background Information

Standards require periodic maintenance/reaffirmation. Standard ANSI/IIAR 7-2013 has gone through preliminary maintenance reviews and includes the recommended changes for its reaffirmation. This revised standard, BSR/IIAR 7-201x, continues to stay abreast for its intent to define the minimum requirements for developing operating procedures for closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems.

This revised standard reflects the input received and consensus thereof from ammonia refrigeration industry practitioners for developing minimum requirements for operating procedures. This revised standard is not intended to serve as a comprehensive or detailed operating procedures manual and shall not be used as such. Additional precautions may be necessary because of particular circumstances, project specifications, or other jurisdictional considerations.

This revised standard supplements existing general refrigeration standards issued by IIAR and other organizations such as ASHRAE, ASME, and ANSI. It is not intended to supplant existing safety codes (e.g., model mechanical or fire codes).

This standard revision has been approved by IIAR's Board of Directors for public review.

This second (2nd) public review of the draft standard, presenting substantive changes only, will be conducted from March 2nd, 2018 through April 1st, 2018. Comments must be submitted to IIAR no later than 5 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST) on April 1st, 2018. Click here for a copy of the public review draft in electronic (pdf) form.

Copies will also be provided by fax or mail upon request. Click here for the on-line request form, or click here to download a pdf file of the request form.

American National Standards Institute (ANSI) procedures will be utilized to develop evidence of consensus for this proposed standard. IIAR is the ANSI-Accredited standards developer for BSR/IIAR 7-201x. Individuals, organizations, companies, government agencies, standards developers, etc., who are directly and materially affected by the proposed standard are invited to participate in the public review.
