The Society of Heating, Air-Conditioning, and Sanitary Engineers of Japan (SHASE) is a major organisation for heating, air conditioning and sanitary engineering, developing the science of mechanical service systems for buildings and environmental engineering.

The Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating (AIRAH) and the The Society of Heating, Air-Conditioning, and Sanitary Engineers of Japan (SHASE) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to strengthen ties with respect to advocate for the safe, reliable and efficient use of ammonia and other natural refrigerants.

This formal agreement helps both Institutes in the advancing of the industry, and in the sharing of information. Members of each Institute will also benefit in shared access to technical resources, events, and education/training.

The key areas of the agreement include:
  • Exchange of Technical Articles between ISHRAE's AC&R Journal and AIRAH's magazines – Ecolibrium and HVAC&R Nation
  • Joint efforts in developing Standards and Codes of Practice
  • Exchange of distinguished speakers to present at each other’s major conferences, seminars, and workshops.
