The IIAR, in its continuing mission to promote the safe and sustainable use of natural refrigerants, has produced a new ANSI approved standard specifying minimum requirements for the safe design, safe installation, start-up, and inspection, testing, and maintenance (ITM) of closed-circuit carbon dioxide refrigeration systems and any modifications or additions to an existing system.

The content of this standard includes:

  • Part 1 General Information
  • Part 2 Design Consideration Affecting Construction
  • Part 3 Installation
  • Part 4 Start-up of New Systems and Additions or Modifications to Existing Systems
  • Part 5 Inspection, Testing and Maintenance
  • Part 6 Appendices
