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 A document is offered for public review for a limited period of time after which it is withdrawn for comment resolution and revision.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

This standard is part of a suite of standards currently in development to address requirements for special event safety. It intends to define "crowd management," as distinguished from "crowd control," to provide an overview of crowd management theory and vocabulary, and to apply these terms to certain reasonably foreseeable risks that arise during live events. The standard is intended both to identify minimum standards and requirements, and also to provide questions and suggestions that help event organizers make reasonable choices under the circumstances of their event.  Event Safety  February 12, 2019  April 09, 2019

Introduction to Modern Atmospheric Effects. 6th edition

Download the Review Form

Download the Document

The Introduction to Modern Atmospheric Effects was written to be an introductory text on fog and haze effects, offering a factual presentation on all types of popular atmospheric fog effects. A 6th edition has been developed to give some information about formal monitoring techniques and air sampling methods that may be needed to control fog exposure. The new text is designed to introduce the reader to these monitoring methods; the details on how to do air sampling are given in other publicly available sources cited by the Introduction.

This new 6th edition is offered for review to give the public a chance to point out any errors or omissions in this basic-level informational document, and to make suggestions for possible improvements.
