Five years after legionellosis standard was released for consultation, it is now available in a new standard from ASHRAE. The new ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 188-2015, establishes a minimum legionellosis risk management requirements for building water systems.

Tom Watson, chair of ASHRAE’s Standard 188 Committee stated “With 8,000 to 10,000 cases of Legionnaires’ disease reported each year in the United States, and with more than 10 percent of those cases fatal, it is vital that we set requirements to manage risk and bacteria.”

ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 188-2015, Legionellosis: Risk Management for Building Water Systems, is intended for use by owners and managers of human-occupied buildings and those involved in the design, construction, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance and service of centralized building water systems and components.

To purchase a copy of ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 188-2015, Legionellosis: Risk Management for Building Water Systems go to the ASHRAE Bookstore.
