IESO/RIA Standard 6001
Evaluation of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Interior Surfaces to Determine the Presence of Fire-related Particulate as a Result of a Fire in a Structure
An American National Standard
Following a fire or smoke event, a standardized evaluation of HVAC interior surfaces is necessary. The methodologies in this standard are used to identify the presence or absence of fire-related particulate in an HVAC system. The standard uses char as the primary marker and soot as the secondary marker, and requires the quantification of char or soot concentrations to allow comparisons with a control sample.
