Effective Date for the A92 Suite of Standards Extended to June 1, 2020
The effective date for the new ANSI/SAIA A92 Suite of Standards – originally scheduled for December 2019 – has been extended to June 1, 2020. The complete suite of standards includes:
- ANSI/SAIA A92.20 – 2018 | Design, Calculations, Safety Requirements, and Test Methods for Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs)
- ANSI/SAIA A92.22 – 2018 | Safe Use of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs)
- ANSI/SAIA A92.24 – 2018 | Training Requirements for the Use, Operation, Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs)
A decision by the ANSI Board of Standards Review (BSR) regarding appeals submitted on ANSI/SAIA A92.20 and A92.22 resulted in a limited revision on language that violated the ANSI Commercial Terms Policy. The limited revisions were balloted and approved by the ASC A92 Main Committee. After the close of the ballot, the unresolved objectors were notified of their right to appeal. Two of those unresolved objectors have requested hearings because their complaints were unable to be resolved informally. We are in the process of confirming the appeal panel members for these hearings. Once the hearing takes place, the appeal panel with have 30-days to render their decision.
