Post Time:Dec 07,2009Classify:Success StoriesView:1181

Having resolved comments from its most recent ballot, the Steering Committee of the ASC Z97 Committee has forwarded its updated Z97.1 Standard - Safety Glazing Materials Used in Buildings - Safety Performance Specifications and Methods of Test to ANSI for approval.

Although ANSI must review the new documentation prior to approving the standard, the Steering Committee anticipates that the revised standard will be published in the first quarter of 2010. The standard will be available in electronic form at
The Steering Committee is planning on reconvening in June or July 2010 to discuss opening the activities for a 2014 version of the standard, as it is required to be updated or re-approved every 5 years.

The officers of the ASC Z97 committee note that they "are extremely grateful to the committee members for all their time and effort that they put into developing this version of the standard, especially to those task group chairs and members of the Steering Committee who had to put in extra duty many times to get us to this new version."
