ANSI Rules in Favor of Appeals Against A92 Standards for MEWPs

Date: 31-05-2019 / Author: kscally

The ANSI Board of Standards Review (BSR) found in favor of two appeals filed against the approval of the new A92 standards for MEWPs, stating that the design, safe use, and training standards violate the commercial terms and conditions of ANSI’s Essential Requirements. 

The appeals, which were heard by the BSR on May 7, pertained to the requirements of the Manual of Responsibilities (MOR) and that modifications or additions to a MEWP be made only with the permission of the manufacturer, arguing that those provisions were not in compliance with ANSI’s commercial policy.
