ASTM WK17412

    Revision of F853 - 05 Standard Practice for Maintenance Procedures for Amusement Rides and Devices

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F24.30 | Committee F24 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    A task group was formed under Sub-Committee F24.30 to review and recommend changes to the current Standard F 853 Standard Practice for Maintenance procedures for Amusement Rides and Devices. In coordination with the realignment of Committee F24 Standards the goal of this task group is to propose a revised Standard that may serve as a useful guide for those in the industry involved in the Maintenance Program Development for Amusement Rides and Devices for the purpose of promoting safety. F 853 in its entirety has been successfully relocated and published in the applicable sections of F 1193 and F 770. This revision proposes deletion of these redundant language/requirements, while creating a new Standard addressing the development of amusement ride and device maintenance programs, which is not addressed elsewhere in ASTM. This revision is intended to be a first step in providing a basic structure for providing guidance for those involved in developing Amusement Ride and Device Maintenance Programs. The Task group is submitting for your consideration the replacement of the existing standard with the following language. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Tim Viox at 407.363.2121 or Joe Relich at 407.824.7076.
