Resilience and Security
ASHRAE Technical Committee 2.10

Scope of TC 2.10

TC 2.10 Resilience and Security is concerned with fundamental scientific and engineering design principles for the resilience of the built environments subjected to extraordinary events including mitigating consequential damages, remediation, and recovery.


ASHRAE writes standards for the purpose of establishing consensus for: 1) methods of test for use in commerce and 2) performance criteria for use as facilitators with which to guide the industry. ASHRAE publishes the following three types of voluntary consensus standards: Method of Measurement or Test (MOT), Standard Design and Standard Practice. ASHRAE does not write rating standards unless a suitable rating standard will not otherwise be available. ASHRAE is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and follows ANSI's requirements for due process and standards development. Standards may be purchased at the ASHRAE Bookstore. 

TC 2.10 is responsible for ASHRAE Guideline 29-2017 Risk Management Guideline.
