Code required ventilation for copy machines?

Does anyone know if the building code or mechanical code (California) requires ventilation or exhaust for copiers? I've been told by others that this is the case...I've never heard of that before...

Thanks!!!

maybe the reference is that it is necessary to ventilate and/or cool any equipment load, which would include copying equipment (of course this would most likely come into play only in dedicated reproduction areas, large pieces of equipment that generate appreciable heat load, etc.)... such loads would be part of overall building energy and ventilation analysis...

otherwise I've never run into this...

IMC Table 403.3 requires that workrooms with "Duplicating, printing" must have 0.5 cfm/sq. ft. of outdoor ventialtion air. I couldn't find anything specific for the copiers themselves. Also, read the owner's manual for the copier--it may have requirements for ventilation, too.
