This document describes a building enclosure commissioning process to achieve a well performing, durable and maintainable building enclosure. This document includes procedures, methods and documentation requirements describing the application of the commissioning process to a building enclosure at each phase of a project. These project phases span from predesign through owner occupancy and operation. This process is referred to throughout this document as building enclosure commissioning (BECx). This document applies to new building construction and building re-commissioning. This document is for use by an owner, commissioning provider, building developer, owner's representative, construction manager, architect, contractor, and/or consultant, etc. Its purpose is to determine and complete the required tasks and activities to deliver a building enclosure which meets the performance requirements of the owner. Requirements for the project are established by the owner and/or commissioning provider (CxP). This document identifies steps necessary to perform a building enclosure risk analysis. The analysis will result in tasks that define the level of BECx, commensurate with the owner's tolerance for risk associated with building enclosure performance. The BECx process covered by this document is applicable to an individual assembly, a combination of assemblies or a whole enclosure assembly. For example, an individual assembly can be the fenestration, the air barrier or the thermal insulation. A combination of assemblies would include the fenestration, the air barrier and the complete heat transfer system, (e.g. both the insulation and roof assembly). A whole building enclosure assembly would include all heat, air and moisture control layers of the building enclosure, on all six sides of the building. This document describes requirements for any third-party consultants and/or building enclosure commissioning providers (BECxP) to document their technical qualifications, independence and knowledge of the BECx process, including their education, training, and experience.

This document specifies the design requirements, selection and application of exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) for use by building designers, building code officials, product manufacturers and contractors in order to sustain the installed performance and durability of EIFS. NOTE This document does not address all aspects related to EIFS design, selection and use. A working knowledge of applicable regional building codes and regulations is helpful when working with this document. There could be other considerations for specific installations that are not addressed by this document. This document contains design requirements for the design and installation of an EIFS as a wall cladding system. The document includes selection of materials that meet the requirements of ISO 17738‑1, and installation requirements in accordance with ISO 17738‑2 and covers the interfaces between EIFS and other building assemblies and components. This document refers to adhesively fastened systems, although mechanical fastening could be required in specific circumstances (refer to Annex A). For information on EIFS resiliency, refer to Annex B. This document does not specify the structural design of the substrate to which the EIFS is attached, nor does it provide design requirements when the installation of EIFS uses mechanical fasteners. This document is applicable to new and retrofit EIFS installations.

This document specifies requirements for factory-made products of sheep wool, which are used for the thermal insulation of buildings. This document applies to material containing more than 50 % (by mass) natural sheep wool, with the balance being polymeric material. The products are delivered as a mat or board with or without facings. This document describes product characteristics and testing methods, marking, labelling and packaging. Products covered in this document are also used in prefabricated thermal insulation systems and composite panels; the performance of systems incorporating these products is not covered. The sheep wool mat and board thermal insulation is not to be used when the continuous service temperature of the substrate is outside the range of −60 °C to +80 °C. The use of mothproof agent residues is outside the scope of this document. This document does not address all the health and safety aspects associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish appropriate health and safety practices.

ISO 17738-1:2017 outlines requirements for exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS), used in combination with a drained air space as an exterior wall cladding system. It also outlines the requirements for water resistive barrier systems that are to be used with EIFS. The EIFS wall cladding system is comprised of liquid-applied water resistive barrier, an adhesive for attachment of the thermal insulation boards to the substrate, rigid thermal insulation boards, a glass fibre reinforcing mesh embedded in a base coat on the face of the thermal insulation boards and a finish coat. The use of mechanical fasteners is outside the scope of this document, but is acceptable as a complement and/or as an alternate to adhesive for attachment where the substrate will not support adhesive attachment of the EIFS. In EIFS, the thermal insulation boards support the base coat with integral glass fibre reinforcing mesh. Systems where the reinforcement is the supporting element of the rendering, e.g. conventional stucco, are not covered by this document. ISO 17738-1:2017 does not purport to address all the health and safety aspects associated with its use. Anyone using this document has the responsibility to consult the appropriate authorities and to establish health and safety practices, in conjunction with any existing applicable regulatory requirements, prior to its use.

ISO 8143:2010 specifies the requirements for factory-made calcium silicate products which are used for thermal insulation of industrial installations and building equipment with an operating temperature of up to approximately +1 100 °C. NOTE Calcium silicate products can be used at temperatures lower than 0 °C. For operating temperatures below 0 °C, special tests, regarding the suitability of the product in the intended application, are advised (e.g. liquefaction of oxygen). It is advisable to seek the advice of the manufacturer(s) in all cases. The products are manufactured in the form of boards, pipe sections, segments and prefabricated ware. ISO 8143:2010 describes product characteristics and includes procedures for testing, evaluation of conformity, marking and labelling. Products covered by ISO 8143:2010 are also used in prefabricated thermal insulation systems and composite panels; the structural performance of systems incorporating these products is not covered.

ISO 12576-2:2008 establishes three systems for the conformity control of thermal insulating products that are manufactured on-site from components produced in a factory and provides the minimum requirements for each system. Examples of these types of products are loose fill and spray-applied insulations. The purpose of ISO 12576-2:2008 is to provide uniform methods to determine whether the production of a thermal-insulating product is acceptable as conforming to the relevant specification requirements once it is installed on site.

ISO 9774:2004 gives guidelines to the standards writer in selecting thermal-insulation material properties for standards used in building applications. These guidelines are not intended to prove the suitability of any particular product for any given application. The standard applies only to prefabricated thermal-insulation products, i.e. manufactured mats and boards including any facings or coverings which may be present, although the basic characteristics may also be applied to other insulation products, e.g. in situ in systems or components, where appropriate. The standard covers only thermal-insulation products for use in buildings within normal climatic conditions. It does not cover insulation products for building services, e.g. plumbing and heating, nor insulation products for industrial use. Acoustic properties are not included in the properties given in the standard, although these may be additionally required for some fields of application.
