ASHRAE and JSRAE Advance Mutual Interests
June 8, 2010

Illustrating that concerns about the built environment are shared worldwide, the American Society of Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Japan Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (JSRAE) recently made a commitment to collaborate by signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU). The MOU was signed last month at ASHRAE Headquarters in Atlanta. The two groups are agreeing to advance and promote the mutual interests of engineering and built environment professionals. ASHRAE currently has 157 members in Japan.

JSRAE is being proactive in building an industry infrastructure for refrigerant tracking and management that they hope will eventually be adopted into law in Japan. ASHRAE is tracking this JSRAE initiative very closely. JSRAE representatives are interested in the ongoing development of ASHRAE Standard 147, Reducing the Release of Halogenated Refrigerants from Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Equipment and Systems, which is closely related to the refrigerant management issue. Standard 147 is currently under revision.
