Public Review Documents
ANSI procedures require that a standard be submitted to public review so that all parties materially affected have an opportunity to participate in its development. This ensures the standard reflects the consensus of opinion in the industry. A document is offered for public review for a limited period of time after which it is withdrawn for comment resolution and revision. If substantive changes are made to the document it will be offered for a subsequent public review.  If no substantive changes are made and the working group is satisfied with the document, the standard will be put forth for acceptance as an American National Standard.

The draft documents are produced by members of the working groups in the Technical Standards Program. Membership in the working groups is open to all who are materially affected by the work of the group; membership in ESTA or any other association is not a requirement. Voting members are required to attend meetings, but observer members are not, although they are welcome to attend and to speak on issues if they choose. More information about working groups and an application to join are available under the working groups link.

Each public review packet includes the draft document and a response form. There may also be an explanatory document that gives the purpose or background of the document, but this is optional. Please submit comments by the due date noted on the response form, which is the day before the "Submit Before This Date" listed in the table here. The review has ended when that date starts.

Below is a list of documents currently under public review. To participate in the review of these documents, please download the necessary forms and documents by using the links provided below. After you submit your comments, you should receive a confimation within one week.

BSR E1.40-201x, Recommendations for the Planning of Theatrical Dust Effects

Download the Review Form

A wide variety of products are used to create dust effects in motion picture and television production, and also in live theatrical productions and theme parks. The use of dust aerosols raises concerns for potential hazards, including combustibility and health effects from inhalation or ingestion, which are well-known in some industrial sectors, but are poorly understood in others. This document would provide recommendations for how to plan the use and assess the safety of such effects.

This document was last approved as an American National Standard in 2011 and is being revised to warn against deflagration--deflagration being the technical term for the wave of flame that burned hundreds of people at a water park in Taiwan last year. Other changes include a regrouping of types of dusts and changing MSDS references to SDS references.

BSR E1.41 - 201x, Recommendations for Measuring and Reporting Photometric Performance Data for Entertainment Luminaires Utilizing Solid State Light Sources

This standard is intended to be used for the presentation of photometric data for luminaires employing solid state light sources used in the entertainment and performance industries. This standard defines photometric data that may be presented on documents purporting to accurately describe the photometric performance of these luminaires when producing both white and colored light.

Originally approved as an American National Standard in 2012, E1.41 is being revised to specify that the Fidelity Index (Rf) rating, as defined in IES TM-30-15, be used for reporting the production of white light of a reported CCT. The existing ANSI standard requires reporting the CQS score, but CQS has no hold in the lighting market. CRI is a flawed metric, not suitable for narrow-band emitters.

The standard offers recommendations and requirements for makeup mirror lighting in performer dressing rooms and similar locations. It defines a range of acceptable lamp CCTs and color-rendering ratings, and also specifies illumination levels and lighting angles for illuminating the performer's face.

This standard was approved as an American National Standard last year, but is being opened for revision to add the Fidelity Index (Rf) rating per IES TM-30-15, IES Method for Evaluating Light Source Color Rendition, as an acceptable rating to meet the requirements for color rendering.
