Prioritizing voluntary standards. The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 encourages the use of voluntary consensus standards developed by organizations such as ASTM International, ASHRAE, ANSI, and others. Where available, voluntary consensus standards should be used over standards developed by government agencies. For technical standards such as for sampling and laboratory analysis in workplace or indoor environmental quality settings, consensus standards are vetted by a wider (and usually more knowledgeable) audience than those developed by a single government agency, and are therefore more useful for their intended purpose. The article will discuss the Act's relevance to the IH community and the benefits of using standard practices and test methods.
