Recommended Practice of Daylighting Buildings

Published by: Illuminating Engineering Society / 2013 / 85 pages
Daylighting refers to the art and practice of admitting beam sunlight, diffuse sky light, and reflected light from exterior surfaces into a building to contribute to lighting requirements and energy savings through the use of electric lighting controls. The role of electric lighting in daylighted spaces should be to complement daylight during daytime and supply the required illumination levels during nighttime.

ISO 15628:2013

Intelligent transport systems – Dedicated short range communication (DSRC) – DSRC application layer

Published by: International Organization for Standardization / 11/01/2013

ISO 15628:2013 specifies the application layer core which provides communication tools for applications based on DSRC. These tools consist of kernels that can be used by application processes via service primitives. The application processes, including application data and application-specific functions, are outside the scope of ISO 15628:2013.

ISO 15628:2013 is named "application layer", although it does not cover all functionality of OSI Layer 7 and it includes functionality from lower layers.

It uses services provided by DSRC data link layer, and covers functionality of intermediate layers of the "OSI Basic Reference Model" (ISO/IEC 7498-1).

The following subjects are covered by ISO 15628:2013:

a) application layer structure and framework;

b) services to enable data transfer and remote operations;

c) application multiplexing procedure;

d) fragmentation procedure;

e) concatenation and chaining procedures;

f) common encoding rules to translate data from abstract syntax ASN.1 (ISO/IEC 8824-1) into transfer syntax (ISO/IEC 8825-2:2002) and vice versa;

g) communication initialisation and release procedures;

h) broadcast service support;

i) DSRC management support including communication profile handling; and

j) extensibility for different lower layer services and application interfaces.

It is outside the scope of ISO 15628:2013 to define a security policy. Some transport mechanisms for security-related data are provided.

AAMI ST58:2013

Chemical sterilization and high-level disinfection in health care facilities

Published by: Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation / 08/21/2013 / 168 pages
This recommended practice provides guidelines for the selection and use of liquid chemical sterilants (LCSs)/high-level disinfectants (HLDs) and gaseous chemical sterilizers that have been cleared for marketing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in hospitals and other health care facilities. These guidelines are intended to assist health care personnel in the safe and effective use of gaseous chemical sterilizing systems, LCSs/HLDs, and associated equipment.

Included within the scope of this recommended practice are functional and physical design criteria for chemical sterilization and high-level disinfection processing areas; staff qualifications, education, and other personnel considerations; criteria for selecting LCSs/HLDs and gaseous chemical sterilizers; safety and efficacy considerations in the use of LCSs/HLDs and gaseous chemical sterilizers; preparation of devices for processing by chemical sterilization or high-level disinfection; quality control methods; and qulaity process improvement. Definitions of terms and informative annexes are also provided.

Lined Fire Hose and Hose Assemblies
UL 19
1 Scope
1.1 These requirements cover single- and multiple-jacketed lined fire hose with or without couplings attached, in the trade sizes of 1½, 1¾, 2, 2½, 3, 3½, 4, 5, and 6 inch (38, 45, 51, 65, 76, 89, 102, 127, and 152 mm nominal ID). Single-jacketed hose is intended for service test pressures of 150, 200, or 250 psig (1035, 1380, or 1725 kPa). Multiple-jacketed hose or covered hose judged equivalent to multiple-jacketed hose is intended for service test pressures of 200, 300, or 400 psig (1380, 2070, or 2760 kPa).

1.2 These products are intended for municipal and industrial fire protection purposes. Single-jacketed hose is for use at fire hydrants, standpipes, and similar places. They are not intended for hard usage nor where the hose will be subjected to chafing on rough or sharp surfaces. Multiple-jacketed hose or covered hose judged equivalent to multiple-jacketed hose are for use on pumpers and in places where service conditions require the additional protection against wear afforded by the extra woven jacket or cover.

1.3 The products covered by these requirements are intended to be periodically inspected and maintained while in service, as outlined in the Standard for the Care, Use, Inspection, Service Testing and Replacement of Fire Hose, Couplings, Nozzles, and Fire Hose Appliances, NFPA 1962.
