ASC A92 Secretariat

For more than 35 years, the SAIA has been developing safety guides for the aerial platform industry. The Association is one of more than 220 ANSI-Accredited Standards Developers (ASC) that develop American National Standards. The SAIA serves as Secretariat for the A92 series of standards and is responsible for adhering to the policies and procedures outlined in the ANSI Essential Requirements, which govern the consensus development process.

On November 20, 2018, ANSI finalized and approved the much-anticipated new A92 suite of standards. The suite – which was published December 10, 2018, and will become effective in December 2019 – is now available for purchase in the SAIA Store. Three distinct performance-written standards comprise the suite:

  • A92.20-2018: Design, Calculations, Safety Requirements and Test Methods for Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs)

  • A92.22-2018: Safe Use of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs)

  • A92.24-2018: Training Requirements for the Use, Operation, Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs)

These new standards, which incorporate performance criteria rather than being product-specific, will replace the standards listed below that are currently in place:

  • A92.3 for Manually Propelled Elevating Aerial Platforms
  • A92.5 for Boom-Supported Elevating Work Platforms

  • A92.6 for Self-Propelled Elevating Work Platforms

  • A92.8 for Vehicle-Mounted Bridge Inspection and Maintenance Devices

Additional standards managed and maintained by the ASC A92 include:
  • A92.2 for Vehicle-Mounted Rotating and Elevating Work Platforms
  • A92.7 for Airline Ground Support Vehicle-Mounted Vertical Lift Devices

  • A92.9 for Mast-Climbing Work Platforms

  • A92.10 for Transport Platforms

The ASC A92 Main Committee consists of 89 member companies and organizations that have been appointed based on their technical, safety, and related industrial expertise. The committee meets annually to review current issues, establish policy and procedures relative to the consensus standards, and evaluate the development activities of each subcommittee.
