Developed and published consensus specifications and recommendations, in a manual, on all facets of a cascade refrigeration system using CO2 (R-744) on the low side and NH3 (R-717) on the high side and to further promote this method of refrigeration using these two natural refrigerants. Maintains a close working relationship with our National and International members to; update information, review code requirements, update material, provide methods of application, research, safety and new component development.
Develops comprehensive policy to guide IIAR’s relationship with model code developers and other organizations and stays updated on codes affecting the mission of IIAR. The committee provides code update information to the membership, and provides outreach to code enforcers by supporting code development, offering educational programs and building relationships on behalf of the ammonia refrigeration industry. The Code Committee is responsible for completing assigned IIAR strategic plan objectives.

Expand IIAR activities around the world, recruit new members, translate IIAR publications and increase global distribution of IIAR publications through appropriate refrigeration organizations worldwide
Promote the use of ammonia refrigeration, reinforce IIAR's image within the ammonia refrigeration and related industries through advertisements and advertorials in industry publications; ensure that industry information is disseminated to members, industry and the general public; work with the headquarters staff on maintaining the marketing plan; develop and administer effective programs to ensure continued growth of IIAR.
Develop and publish consensus specifications for pipe fittings and pipe materials used in the construction of ammonia refrigeration piping systems. Review other areas of interest that concern piping systems such as cleanliness, welding procedures, insulation and pipe sizing and recommends appropriate response to review issues which may include issuing publications.
Identify and develop work statements that when implemented will benefit the ammonia refrigeration industry, and assist the IIAR staff in the development of these work statements into completed research projects
Develop and implement projects intended to inform as well as educate the ammonia refrigeration industry and related parties on the proper and safe use of ammonia as a refrigerant and the proper and safe operation and maintenance of ammonia refrigeration systems
Update and interpret the IIAR standard(s), review and interface with other standard writing organizations that include ammonia and ammonia refrigeration systems within their standards, develop ideas for and write new standards (and other publications of interest to the industry) to be sponsored by IIAR and work with the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) and IIAR staff in moving standards through the ANSI approval/review process.
