Part 3 Ventilation of Outpatient Facilities

Incorporation of Standard 170 into the FGI Guidelines
The 2017 edition of ANSI/ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170: Ventilation of Health Care Facilities-including all issued addenda-is incorporated into the 2018 edition of the Facility Guidelines Institute's Guidelines for Design and Construction of Outpatient Facilities with the exception of Section 4.1 (Compliance Requirements) and Section 4.2 (Administrative Requirements). For requirements on compliance, see Chapter 1.1 in the Guidelines. All addenda issued to the 2013 edition have been included in Standard 170-2017.
In the case of a conflict between the language in Standard 170-2017 and the text of the Guidelines, the Guidelines language shall have priority. In the case of a conflict between an addendum to Standard 170 and the text of the Guidelines, the addendum language shall have priority.
The definitions in Section 3 of Standard 170 apply only to Part 3 of the Guidelines. For definitions that apply to Parts 1 and 2 of the document, see the Guidelines glossary at the front of the book.
Continuous Maintenance of Standard 170
ASHRAE has placed Standard 170: Ventilation of Health Care Facilities under continuous maintenance, which means the document is updated regularly by a standing committee. Updates are developed and published as addenda when new information becomes available. When addenda are issued, they are posted on the websites of the Facility Guidelines Institute (www.fgiguidelines.org) and ASHRAE (www.ashrae.org). Addenda are provided as PDF files and are available for free download.
