In the reference guide, it is written that for "Option 2 Air Testing", the test must be conducted after construction ends and within 14 days following occupancy. Moreover, the test can be repeated until all requirements have been met.

I have conducted an IAQ test 12 days after occupancy starts, and I have received a comment from the reviewer stating that the test should be conducted prior to occupancy, which is clearly in contradiction with the LEED CI 2009 reference guide that I have previously quoted.

Has anyone ever faced this issue? Is there any precedent I could use?

Thank you.
