    Work Item: ASTM WK34478 - Revision of F2291 - 11 Standard Practice for Design of Amusement Rides and Devices

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F2291 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: F24.24 | Committee F24 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    A task group was formed under Sub-Committee F24.30 to review and recommend changes to F24 Standards that have an impact to Maintenance procedures and practices for Amusement Rides and Devices. The task group has reviewed the maintenance sections of the following F24 Standards: F770, F1193 and F2291. As a result, the task group has concluded that a new section is needed for Documentation for the Owner/Operator in F2291. This section will be populated with sections moved from F1193 that are intended for the designer/engineer to provide. It is also the intent of the task group to have this section point to areas within F2291 that impact maintenance. After receiving approval of the moves the task team will provide ballots for editorial clean up.
