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 A document is offered for public review for a limited period of time after which it is withdrawn for comment resolution and revision.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 establishes minimum requirements for the selection and use of personal fall arrest systems (PFAS) on portable structures in the entertainment industry. In addition, the standard establishes minimum requirements for products and portable structures used in the service of PFAS. The requirements for other methods used to protect workers from fall hazards such as safety nets, guard rails, and rope access techniques are not included in this standard. This standard does not preclude the use of other appropriate standards to promote fall protection safety.  Rigging  May 01, 2020  June 29, 2020 
BSR E1.54, ESTA Standard for Color Communication in Entertainment Lighting

The draft standard is a revision of the existing ANSI E1.54. It specifies a standardized way of specifying color to facilitate the communications between lighting controllers and color-changing luminaires. The method is generic and is neither manufacturer-specific nor color technology-specific. The revisions are needed to make the standard more useful and to update the document's name.

The draft standard and the notes on it are being distributed together in a ZIP file. The draft standard is intended to become an American National Standard. The notes are simply informative notes, and neither add to nor subtract from the requirements of the standard. Reviewers are asked to look at both documents. We don't want errors or confusing text in either of them.
