    This ballot item is the result of addressing several comments received on the prior A01.03 subcommittee 18-03 and A01 Main 19-01 ballots. During the May 2019 A01.03 meeting in Denver, these comments were discussed by subcommittee members in attendance. A consensus was reached for the following: A title change occurred after the review of ISO 2232 in 2015, therefore the title in Section 2: Referenced Documents for ISO 2232 has been revised. Figure 1 included acronym inconsistencies, therefore the captions were adjusted to agree with the defined terms in Section 3. Referencing Figure 9 had the potential to misrepresent defined terms, therefore the language within Sections 3.9.1 and 3.9.2 were switch. Sections 3.12.4, 3.20, and 3.21 all contained the word must in which it was agreed to replace with the word shall. Particular to this standard, rope and wire rope can be used interchangeably though in the case of Section 3.15.1, both terms were utilized causing redundancy, therefore the phase for wire ropes was removed. Due to an editorial error, Section 3.15.1 was missing a reference to Table 2; it has now been included. Notes 2, 3, and 6 include shall statements thus creating requirements. It was agreed to delete these notes and create subsections to address these statements. Removal of these notes caused a renumbering of Notes 4, 5, and 7. It was found that Section contained redundant language, therefore of 2000 pounds was deleted.
