The new ANSI A92 standards will be published May 15 and take effect June 1, 2020.

The Scaffold & Access Industry Association announced on May 7 that the ANSI Board of Standards Review had made its final decision resolving two separately filed appeals.

The first was Tutus Solutions’ appeal of the approval of A92.20 and A92.22 as American National Standards.

The second was the American Rental Association’s appeal of A92.20, A92.22, and A92.24 as American National Standards.

The ANSI A92 Main Committee voted to push back the effective date for the new suite of MEWP standards to June 1, according to DeAnna Martin, executive director and ANSI liaison of the Scaffold & Access Industry Association.

This is the second time the effective date has been delayed since the A92 suite, which include the A92.20 design, A92.22 safe use, and A92.24 training requirements, were submitted to ANSI for publication at the end of 2018. Ongoing appeals have contributed to the delays.

ANSI is planning to publish the updated A92 suite of standards on Dec. 10, setting the stage to usher in sweeping changes for the design and use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs).

The changes to the standards will affect manufacturers, dealers, rental companies, owners, and users of MEWPs. The new standards are more than six years and thousands of man-hours in the making, said Ted Beville, executive director of the Scaffold & Access Industry Association (SAIA), which serves as the standards' secretariat.
