PROCEDURE ASHRAE Rules and Procedures ANSI Essential Requirements Due Process Requirements ASHRAE Rules and Procedures Rules of the Board of Directors (ROB) supersedes all other rules Procedures for ASHRAE Standards Actions (PASA) procedures governing the methods used for standards development StdC Manual of Procedures (StdC MOP) & Reference Manual (StdC RM) procedures for Standards Committee and its subcommittees ANSI Essential Requirements ANSI Essential Requirements (ANSI ER) due process requirements for activities related to the development of consensus for approval, revision, reaffirmation, and withdrawal of American National Standards (ANS)

As an ANSI-Accredited Standards Developer, ASHRAEs standards development procedures (PASA) are required to comply with the policies and procedures set forth in the ANSI Essential Requirements ASHRAE Rules and Procedures Project Committee Manual of Procedures (PC MOP) in transition to the PC Guide to PASA: Defines the formation, structure, and activities of Project Committees (PCs) Establishes criteria and procedures for each step in writing and processing ASHRAE Standards Committee Documents (SCDs) Includes oversight procedures intended to ensure that due process is followed and consensus achieved in developing and maintaining SCDs ANSIs Rules are like three legs of a stool Due Process

Openness Balance & Lack of Dominance Due Process Any person (organization, company, government agency, individual, etc.) with a direct and material interest has a right to participate by: a) Expressing a position and its basis b) Having that position considered, and c) Appealing if adversely affected Due process allows for equity and fair play Due Process Requirements Minimum due process requirements: Openness Balance Lack of dominance Consideration of views and objections Consensus vote Right to appeal

Openness Participation shall be open to anyone: Does not mean membership or vote on a committee Can be as simple as attending a meeting or submitting a public review comment All PC meetings and conference calls must be announced to ensure openness A list of all attendees must be recorded in the meeting minutes ASHRAE membership IS NOT required to be a PC member ASHRAE membership IS required to be a PC Chair, Vice- Chair or Subcommittee Chair Balance Purpose of balance is to ensure that all affected viewpoints are considered in a PCs deliberations ASHRAEs requirements for balance on SPCs and SSPCs are from ANSI criteria: No single interest category equals more than half of a

committee membership dealing with product standards No single interest category equals more than one third of the membership of a committee dealing with safety standards Balance within SPC subcommittees and GPCs is desirable but not required Lack of Dominance Standards development process shall not be dominated by any single interest category, individual or organization Dominance means a position or exercise of dominant authority, leadership, or influence by reason of superior leverage, strength, or representation to the exclusion of fair and equitable consideration of other viewpoints Balance vs. Dominance Balance and a lack of dominance are two distinct considerations:

A balanced consensus body does not preclude the exercise of dominance Similarly, existence of a less than perfectly balanced consensus body does not necessarily reflect a process in which dominance automatically occurs Balance is quantifiable, dominance is not: ask your PC Chairs if there is any indication of dominance in their committee Balance and Interest Categories ASHRAEs principles for the identification and selection of interest categories for a PC align with ANSI Essential Requirements on balance: Interest categories appropriate to the development of consensus in any given standards activity are a function of the nature of the standard being developed Interest categories shall be discretely defined, cover all materially affected parties and differentiate each category from the other categories

Balance and Interest Categories In defining interest categories appropriate to a standards activity, consideration shall be given to at least the following: Producer User General Where appropriate, additional interest categories should be considered to ensure participation of directly affected and interested parties related to a particular TPS Appropriate representative user views shall be actively sought and fully considered in standards activities For more information see Interest Category Definitions for approved PC interest categories Other Due Process Requirements Consideration of views and objections: Prompt consideration shall be given to written views and objections of all participants, including those commenting on PINS announcement or public comment listing in Standards Action Consensus vote:

Evidence of consensus shall be documented Requires a supermajority 2/3 vote of those voting Requires a majority of the voting membership Appeals: Procedural appeals regarding any action or inaction Procedural appeals include whether a technical issue was afforded due process Appeals based solely on technical issues are no longer eligible for appeal (however, failure to address a technical issue is a procedural issue) Consensus Consensus defined: Substantial agreement, in the judgment of a duly appointed authority, reached by directly and materially affected interest categories Substantial agreement means much more than a simple majority but not necessarily unanimity Consensus requires that all views and objections be considered, and that an effort

be made toward their resolution SPLS LIAISON RESPONSIBILITIES Coordinate Monitor & Report Guide As a liaison, coordinate with your PCs Work closely with PC Chairs to: Develop and maintain balanced PC membership Review PC membership package to ensure all stakeholders are represented and balance exists Prepare a PC work plan Review and submit PC work plan for SPLS approval Review Publication Public Review Drafts Review publication public review packages to ensure procedures were followed Understand reasons for no votes and the efforts to resolve issues As a liaison, you will monitor & report

PC vote to approve (simple majority) PUBLICATION PUBLIC REVIEW Advisory Public Review Publication Public Review Substantive Changes

Approval Public Reviews PCs vote to recommend a draft SCD for one of two types of public review: "Advisory Public Review" (APR) or "Publication Public Review" (PPR) Advisory Public Review (APR) Allows PC to solicit comments on all (or portions) of SCD for comment Generally used if draft contains new, unusual or potentially controversial elements that PC believes would benefit from increased public scrutiny prior to publication public review PC votes to recommend APR with a majority vote No continuation letter ballot, no roll call vote record, no marked up roster, or submittal form is needed for processing APR is approved by SPLS Liaison and the SPLS Chair Length of PR period determined by PC in consultation with

SPLS Liaison and manager of standards (MOS). Any comments received as a result of an APR are deemed to be "supportive" and do not need to be "resolved." Subsequent full public review is required. Publication Public Review (PPR) Successful PC vote to recommend PPR Affirmative vote of a majority of PC membership (PCVMs), AND At least 2/3 of those voting, excluding abstentions Vote can be taken at meeting or by letter ballot For vote is taken at a meeting, absent voting members shall be given an opportunity to vote before or after meeting and before ballot closes (continuation letter ballot) Negative PC Votes with Reason Two actions must be taken when a negative vote with reason is received from a project committee member on a vote for publication public review: 1. The negative PC voters must receive, in writing,

the disposition of their objections and the reasons why 2. A recirculation vote must be taken giving all voting PC members an opportunity to change or reaffirm their vote based on the information provided in #1 above Letter Ballots Persons who cast a negative vote on a letter ballot are requested to provide a reason for their negative vote If motion passes with one or more negative votes with comments, a recirculation ballot will be conducted so that all eligible voters can change their vote after reviewing comments Chair may offer a rebuttal to comments from negative voters

Chair may authorize letter ballot to be issued on any matter PPR Approval Document must be approved by SPLS before it can be issued for public review through Fast Track or Normal Track Process PPR packages can be submitted at any time and a public review will be issued once approved by SPLS Fast Track Drafts that meet following criteria are considered to be on Fast Track: No negative votes within the PC No credible threat (in writing) of legal action against ASHRAE related to draft Not a Policy Level Standard (PCs may request an exception from the SPLS Chair for this criterion for noncontentious issues)

Public Review Package is sent to SPLS Liaison for review, who has ten calendar days to notify MOS that due process has not been violated Normal Track For all other cases, known as the Normal Track, SPLS must review submittal package for due process and approve draft before it can be issued for public review Normal Track generally includes: Policy level SCDs SCDs with negative PC votes 2nd+ PPRs with unresolved commenters Potentially contentious issues PPR Review What to Look For Review all the material in submittal package to determine if due process has been met and procedures followed: PC membership is balanced (check the roster) with no evidence of dominance

Meetings and conference calls of the committee were open (check the PC minutes) Publication public review vote was correctly taken with a standards action vote (PC majority plus 2/3 of those voting less abstentions, vote yes) All PC members had opportunity to vote either at a meeting or by letter ballot (review the voting tally) Attempts to resolve negative votes were properly made and documented If the submittal is a 2nd+ PPR, comments were addressed in a fair and timely manner, and the PC made an attempt at resolution (read the comment files) this includes all negative PC voters Public Review Comments PC reviews PR comments received, decides on their validity, and determines whether to incorporate them into draft Comments received on items not subject to PR may be considered by the PC separately from those received in response to public review PC votes to approve draft responses and then chair responds to each commenter (via Online Comment Database - OCD) indicating the proposed disposition of comment and rationale Commenters reply, indicating whether issue is resolved or unresolved Commenters are considered resolved if they do not respond

within 30 days after being notified that they must indicate in writing, whether or not the PC response resolves their comment Public Review Comments PC has four choices when considering public review comments: No changes are needed to the draft SCD Only editorial changes are needed Substantive changes are needed Draft should be discontinued Substantive Changes After consideration of comments or because of new information received, PC may decide to make changes to draft SCD Substantive changes require an additional public review and another PC vote for publication Additional PPR can be either: Complete revision (another full public review), or Independent Substantive Change (ISC is a substantive change that is independent of any other substantive change and does not

significantly affect any other requirement in document) PC again considers public review comments and attempts to reach resolution with any unresolved commenter Publication Approval If no substantive changes are made, PC Chair submits publication package for approval by Standards Committee and ASHRAE Board If there are unresolved commenters or negative PC voters (with reason), they are informed of their right to appeal after Board approves Standard for publication If they appeal, an appeals panel is formed to hear and decide on the appeals received Once appeals are closed, staff requests ANSI approval of the standard Standard is published and PC is dissolved or approved for continuous maintenance at the request of the PC Continuous Maintenance Proposal For Continuous Maintenance SCDs (SSPCs or SGPCs): 1. Anyone can make a Continuous Maintenance Proposal 2. SSPC or SGPC responses are limited to:

a) b) c) d) proposed change accepted for public review without modification; proposed change accepted for public review with modification; proposed change accepted for further study; and proposed change rejected. 3. Response shall provide reasons for b), c) or d) 4. c) only used if further study to be completed within 7 months 5. After further study PC shall approve a), b), or d) 6.
