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 A document is offered for public review for a limited period of time after which it is withdrawn for comment resolution and revision.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.

The scope includes LED, video and self-illuminating display systems that in any way rely on rigid structural support frames, overhead suspensions, ground-supported stands or wall-mounted techniques during any use or installation, and applies to any of these systems in areas where failure of any support or anchorage could cause personal injury, loss of life or property damage.

BSR E1.24 - 2012 (R201x), Entertainment Technology—Dimensional Requirements for Stage Pin Connectors

E1.24 is a configuration standard that offers requirements for mating male and female pin connectors, for contact set-backs from the front face, and for markings. The electrical reliability and flammability requirements for pin connectors are outside the scope of this standard and would be covered by other standards, such as UL 498, Attachment Plugs and Receptacles. The Electrical Power Working Group seeks to reaffirm this standard, last published in 2012.

The draft standard is posted as a ZIP file, called BSR_E1-24_2012_R201x_wCAD.zip, which includes the standard bundled with the CAD files that were used to create the illustrations in the standard. The standard is the standard; the CAD files are simply included as a convenience for those creating connector shop drawings and are not the standard, though comments on the drawings are welcome.
