ESTA TSP News: Two ANSI Standards in Public Review

May 6, 2020

The ESTA Technical Standards Program (TSP) announces that there are two standards which have been revised, and are being offered for public review. You can read and comment on these two revised standards. The public review period for both draft standards runs through June 28, 2020.

BSR E1.6 – 1 – 202x, Powered Rigging Systems, has been revised to correct errata in section 6.6, which addresses design factors for certain system elements. The public review only covers the revisions made in that section, and no comments regarding other sections are being solicited at this time.

BSR E1.39 – 202x, Entertainment Technology – Selection and Use of Personal Fall Arrest Systems on Portable Structures Used in the Entertainment Industry, is a revision of ANSI E1.39-2015, which is being updated for consistency with current industry practice and technologies. This standard establishes minimum requirements for the selection and use of personal fall arrest systems (PFAS) on portable structures in the entertainment industry. In addition, the standard establishes minimum requirements for products and portable structures used in the service of PFAS.

The public review period for both draft standards runs through June, 28 2020. The draft revisions, review instructions, and pubic review forms for each document are now available for download, here.
