New ASHRAE Standard issued in USA
ASHRAE Standard 188-2015 has finally been issued after more than fifteen years of deliberations. The Standard, Legionellosis: Risk Management for Building Water Systems, is intended to establish a minimum risk management approach to Legionellosis for all building water systems.
Some Australian States, South Australia and Queensland in particular, have already issued guidelines along the same lines. All water systems may harbour legionella bacteria and hence a Water Safety Plan is recommended to ensure that all risks have been identified, managed and controlled.
