Differences between BOMA/SIOR 2004 and ANSI/BOMA Z65.2-2009

Guest User

Is there any difference between the BOMA/SIOR 2004 and the ANSI/BOMA Z65.2-2009 Standards? In the BOMA Store 3 pages of 2009 Standard available for preview are exactly the same as in the 2004 Standard.
I already have 2004 version. Is there any sence for buying 2009?

Thanks for your efforts! :)

The short answer is that there is no difference between BOMA/SIOR 2004 and 2009.

Upon it's completion, the Standard was first published in 2004. As a result, industry came to know the Standard as BOMA/SIOR 2004 (even though this was not it's official name).

Recently, the BOMA sought ANSI approval for the Standard which necessitated a change of name. So officially, the Standard is now called Industrial Buildings: Standard Methods of Measurement (ANSI/BOMA Z65.2–2009).

There is an effort by BOMA to upgrade the Industrial Standard to bring it more in line with the other new Standards. It is likely that this revision will contain significant changes. No date has been set for publication.
