FINAL NOTES www. The ISO 28300 standard is being voted to be adopted as the next edition of API 2000 • Changes to the methods used to calculate required flow capacities (both inbreathing and outbreathing) • API2000 “Determination of Venting Requirements” (currently Section 4.it FINAL NOTES • Current edition of API 2000 standard will change this year.ori.milano. • Existing installations WILL NOT be required to change installed vent valves due to changes in the standard. however.it 20 .3) included as an INFORMATIVE Annex A in the ISO28300 standard.ori.milano. the API and ISO committees highly recommend an evaluation of all installations to determine if they are at risk. www.
