What is the code for not returning bathroom exhaust back into the Air Conditioning system for offices?

RE: Bathroom exhaust

(Based on the 2006 IMC)

Ohio Mechanical Code
501.2 Exhaust discharge. The air removed by every mechanical exhaust system shall be discharged outdoors at a point where it will not cause a nuisance and not less than the distances specified in Section 501.2.1 . The air shall be discharged to a location from which it cannot again be readily drawn in by a ventilating system. Air shall not be exhausted into an attic or crawl space.
1.     Whole-house ventilation-type attic fans shall be permitted to discharge into the attic space of dwelling unit shaving private attics.
2.     Commercial cooking recirculating systems.
