Direct vent termination

Code or not when you vent near the "Exhaust"/ "Fart fan" /Dryer vent. Kitchen Exhaust you can have a Problem!.. say your dryer vent is stuck open, you leave the dryer door open, You have a negative pressure situation in the building i.e. a fan in the window, the Exhaust can be Drawn back into the Living paces and poison the occupiers. and yes there is such a code that states something about Vert. distance from mech.outlets not just inlets.

    Direct vent termination

    Would a vent hood from a bathroom or kitchen exhaust fan be cocidered a non-mechanical vent. What are the codes for venting a appliance near a exhaust hood.
