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 A document is offered for public review for a limited period of time after which it is withdrawn for comment resolution and revision.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

ANSI E1.35-2013 (R2018), Standard for Lens Quality Measurements for Pattern Projecting Luminaires Intended for Entertainment Use

Download the Review Form

ANSI E1.35 describes a method for measuring stage and studio luminaire lens quality with particular emphasis on contrast and perceived projected image quality (sharpness). It also offers a way for presenting these results on a datasheet in a format that is readily understood by a typical end-user and that allows the end-user to directly compare lenses in a meaningful way. Without this standard, there is no way to describe how clearly a stage lighting instrument projects an image, other than by showing a person with the actual instrument and gobo. The current version, ANSI E1.35-2013 (R2018), is being considered for reaffirmation.   Photometrics  July 05, 2022  August 23, 2022

ANSI E1.9 defines the minimum photometric data to be presented on documents purporting to accurately describe the photometric performance of stage and studio luminaires used in the live entertainment and performance industries. The current version, ANSI E1.9-2007 (R2017), is being considered for reaffirmation.   Photometrics  July 05, 2022  August 23, 2022 
ANSI E1.25-2012 (R2017), Recommended Basic Conditions for Measuring the Photometric Output of Stage and Studio Luminaires by Measuring Illumination Levels Produced on a Planar Surface

ANSI E1.25 describes the basic conditions for measuring the photometric output of a stage or studio luminaire by testing methods that measure the illumination levels produced by the luminaire on a planar surface. These testing methods include, but are not limited to, measurements taken by digital cameras or hand-held meters. This standard is not intended to give guidance on testing conditions for testing methods that use goniophotometers. The current version, ANSI E1.25-2012 (R2017), is being considered for reaffirmation.  Photometrics  July 05, 2022  August 23, 2022

This document makes recommendations for the operational and functional aspects of permanent followspot positions within places of public assembly, including the determination of their location within the venue, their physical space requirements, and the safety considerations associated with their use. The revision adds guidance for using glass panes as part of a followspot position, and their interaction with sound attenuation principles, and possible code requirements for certain configurations of glass panes.  Followspot Position  June 28, 2022  August 23, 2022

This standard establishes requirements for the design, manufacture, installation, inspection, operation and maintenance of powered Stage Floor Machinery for performance, presentation, and theatrical production. It covers the machinery, mechanisms, machine safety devices, and control interface requirements for equipment and systems, installed permanently or temporarily. It does not apply to the structure to which the machine is attached nor to the finished floor or its subflooring construction. Machines that produce substantially vertical movement, such as lifts, are also excluded from this standard.  Stage Machinery Working Group  June 28, 2022  August 23, 2022
