Changes or Criteria Notes to Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS)
Paragraph # and Title (if any) Note to Designer Change Text
1.6 SUBMITTALS  If 01 33 29 is not incorporated in the specifications, change reference to 01 33 29 in this section to instead say 01 57 19.01 20 SUPPLEMENTAL TEMPORARY ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROLS and ensure the additional sustainable acquisition language at paragraphs "Submittals" and "Sustainable Acquisition" of 01 57 19.01 20 is included within that section.  
1.6 SUBMITTALS  At SD-11, change "Ozone Depleting Substances; S" to the following: EPA SNAP Approved Refrigerants; S
1.6 SUBMITTALS As applicable based on project scope, also incorporate the equipment- and material-related 'S' submittals located at SD-11 under SD-01 Preconstruction Submittals so the Government can verify legal and policy compliance prior to work commencing.  
2.1 PRODUCT SUSTAINABILITY CRITERIA Delete "For products in this section, where applicable and to extent allowed by
performance criteria, provide and document the following:" The language at 01 33 29/01 57 19.01 20 allows for exceptions based on performance criteria, as long as adequate justification per the applicable legal or policy requirement is provided on HJB Form 225.
 
2.1.1 ENERGY EFFICIENT EQUIPMENT FOR WATER SOURCE HEAT PUMP SYSTEMS AND
