Daylight conditions throughout an internal space directly impact building occupant health and wellbeing. To design a healthy building, many rating systems that use standards and recommendations are used to achieve this goal. Although daylight is usually perceived as a visual phenomenon, it also affects human physiology, behaviour and mood known as non-visual effects which are considered a subjective assessment. These standards and rating systems share the same consideration to improve users' health and wellbeing; however, different approaches have been taken to achieve this goal related to daylight. This paper review three daylight standards and four building rating system studies that are selected and critically evaluated to extract recommendations and guidelines regarding daylighting comfort and wellbeing targets. The review starts with a chronological overview and presents daylight metrics, as well as their underlying methodologies to define the gap in using these metrics to assess daylighting non-visual effects and illustrate the need to use building rating systems’ guidelines and recommendations to enhance these effects. After that, a thematic analysis was conducted to extract the relative recommendation on how building rating systems and daylight standards could contribute to comfort and wellbeing in terms of daylight.
