Each quarter, the team behind the WELL Building Standard assesses whether or not we need to publish addenda: changes and improvements to the WELL Building Standard that help clarify, correct, interpret or provide alternative language for requirements. It’s our method of improving and evolving the standard based on our users’ feedback and our team’s discoveries on a regular basis. We’re proud to participate in this ongoing process with our users. This quarter, the team has determined that there is not a need to publish addenda, as no urgent issues or changes need to be addressed at this time (sometimes, no news is good news). Please see last quarter's addenda for the most recent changes to the WELL Building Standard. Our next assessment process for issuing addenda will occur in October. Going forward, you can expect regular quarterly notifications in January, April, July and October of each year. At each of these milestones, we will assess the need to issue addenda; and either share the changes and improvements with you, or our determination that no changes are needed for that quarter.
