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 originally published December 10, 2018, contained commercial term violations. These violations have been corrected and the revised standards were approved August 5, 2021. Three distinct performance-written standards comprise the suite:

  • ANSI/SAIA A92.20-2021: Design, Calculations, Safety Requirements and Test Methods for Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs)

  • ANSI/SAIA A92.22-2021: Safe Use of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs)

  • ANSI/SAIA 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performance criteria rather than being product-specific, replaced the standards listed below that were administratively withdrawn from ANSI on June 1, 2020. 

  • ANSI/SAIA A92.3-2006 (R2014) for Manually Propelled Elevating Aerial Platforms
  • ANSI/SAIA A92.5-2006 (R2014) for Boom-Supported Elevating Work Platforms

  • ANSI/SAIA A92.6-2006 (R2014) for Self-Propelled Elevating Work Platforms

  • ANSI/SAIA A92.8-2006 (R2011) for Vehicle-Mounted Bridge Inspection and Maintenance Devices

Additional standards managed and maintained by the ASC A92 include:
  • ANSI/SAIA A92.2-2021 for Vehicle-Mounted Rotating and Elevating Work Platforms
  • ANSI/SAIA A92.7-2014 for Airline Ground Support Vehicle-Mounted Vertical Lift Devices

  • ANSI/SAIA A92.9-2011 (R2017) for Mast-Climbing Work Platforms

  • ANSI/SAIA A92.10-2009 (R2014) 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.
