Following the recent publication of the BCxA Ongoing Commissioning Best Practices, come join the principal authors for a discussion of the initial feedback from industry, questions that remain to be answered as we implement the best practices, and where we go next to support the growing field of OCx. In a unique opportunity to hear from multiple perspectives, the panel members will provide examples of how the best practices have been applied in their roles as owner, operator, and provider. Case studies and examples will be shared to show the benefits of a systematic approach to OCx and show the risks of less organized approaches.
