What is CIS?

The ASHRAE Code Interaction Subcommittee (CIS) provides a means for ASHRAE to represent the interests of ASHRAE members and to promote uniform adoption of ASHRAE Standards Committee Documents by U.S. Model Building Codes and other codes. CIS focuses on national model codes and parts of codes that affect ASHRAE member interests, including, but not limited to the Mechanical Code, Building and Fire Code provisions related to fire and smoke control and Building Code provisions related to HVAC and Energy issues. All ASHRAE Code Interaction shall be processed by and through the CIS.
