    The Evolution task group, which consists of over 50 ASTM F24 members including the CPSC, was created by the F24.90 Executive Committee in 2017. This task group reviewed the concerns and comments presented by the AHJs, owner/operators, manufacturers and other entities at the October 2017 and February 2018 ASTM F24 meetings, and explored improvements and additions that can be made to existing F24 standards. The Evolution task group has been divided into three sub task groups, each focusing on a different aspect (design, manufacturer, owner/operator, etc.). The ballots associated with this work item are a result of the work from all 3 sub task groups as they apply to F770. Each ballot will have additional rationale. Please read the rationale before voting as countless hours have been spent by the Evolution and F24.40 task group members in order to generate ballots based on recent tragic events in the amusement industry. Prior to exercising a negative vote, please contact the technical contact above to ensure that the ballot intent and scope are understood by all parties.
