IAQ: Where Technology and Regulation Converge

The COVID-19 pandemic shined a spotlight on the topic of indoor air quality (IAQ) in institutional settings such as airports, hospitals, and schools. Recognizing the link between indoor air quality and the transmission of infectious diseases such as COVID-19, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security created the Model State Indoor Air Quality Act (MSIAQA), a model law for consideration by state legislatures to support improvements in indoor air quality.

Since its original publication in 1981, ASHRAE 62.1-2022 – the ANSI-approved standard for ventilation for indoor air quality – has been updated numerous times to adapt to the current needs, and describes the minimum requirements to achieve acceptable IAQ via dwelling-unit ventilation, local mechanical exhaust, and source control.

In this webinar, we will discuss indoor air quality measures, the most recent updates to ASHRAE 62.1-2022, possible regulatory changes due to state-level adoption of the Johns Hopkins Model State Indoor Air Quality Act (MSIAQA), and how ASHRAE 62.1-2022 and the Johns Hopkins MSIAQA complement each other in the post-pandemic environment.

Learning Objectives:

*What is ASHRAE’s definition of acceptable Indoor Air?
*What is Section 5 of ASHRAE 62.1-2022 and why is it important?
*IAQ Focus – Particulate Matter and Dew Point
*How the Model State Indoor Air Quality Act (MSIAQA) from Johns Hopkins correlates to the new ASHRAE 62.1-2022 Standard
