FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact DeAnna Martin, Executive Director Scaffold & Access Industry Association 816.595.4860 | firstname.lastname@example.org ANSI Board of Standards Review Announces Final Decision Resolving Appeals KANSAS CITY, MO | May 7, 2020 – The Scaffold & Access Industry Association (SAIA) announced today that the ANSI Board of Standards Review (BSR) has made their final decision resolving two separately filed appeals: 1) Tutus Solutions (Tutus) of the approval of A92.20 and A92.22 as American National Standards (ANS); and 2) American Rental Association (ARA) of A92.20, A92.22 and A92.24 (A92 suite of standards) as ANS. The ANSI Board of Standards Review (BSR) stated that, "Based on the SAIA's Response, the BSR believes that the concerns documented in its May 31, 2019 appeals decision have been satisfied and that the original approval of the ANSs at issue, as revised, need not be withdrawn. Under separate cover, approval notices for the related revisions submitted under two separate BSR-9 forms, will be issued and those who concluded the appeals process for those limited revisions, through ASC A92's process, will be notified of the right to appeal the BSR's decision to approve those revisions."
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 SAIA is now accepting entries for its 2020 Association and Project Awards. These awards, which will be presented during September's Annual Convention & Exposition in Phoenix, recognize members for their service, dedication, and contributions to the Association and successes within the scaffold and access industry.
