ASME A17.6 Standard for Elevator Suspension, Compensation, and Governor Systems. This Standard covers the means and members of suspension, compen- sation, and governor systems for elevators within the Scope of ASME A17.1/CSA B44. This Standard includes the material properties, design, testing, inspection, and replacement criteria for these means. It includes the requirements for steel wire rope, aramid fiber rope, and noncircular elastomeric-coated steel suspension mem- bers, and provides direction for future constructions as new technology develops. ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7 Performance-Based Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators. This American National Standard performance-based safety code cov- ers the design, construction, installation, operation, test- ing, maintenance, alteration, and repair of elevators, dumbwaiters, escalators, moving walks, and material lifts. ASME A17.8 Safety Code for Wind Turbine Tower Elevators. This American National Standard covers ele- vators permanently installed in a wind tower to provide vertical transportationofauthorized personneland their tools and equipment only. Published Interpretations. Interpretations of the vari- ous A17 standards are published periodically. Interpretations of A17.1 and A17.2 approved by the A17 Committee from June 14, 1972 through June 1979, were published in a separate book in 1980. Starting with the 1981 edition of the Code, interpreta- tions are published with each new edition and xxii supplement of the applicable standard.

CORRESPONDENCE WITH A17 COMMITTEE ASME codes and standards are developed and main- tained with the intent to represent the consensus of con- cerned interests. As such, users of this and other ASME A17 codes and standards may interact with the committee by requesting interpretations, proposing revisions, and attending committee meetings. Corre- spondence should be addressed to: Secretary, A17 Standards Committee The American Society of Mechanical Engineers Two Park Avenue New York, NY 10016 http://go.asme.org/Inquiry All correspondence to the Committee must include the individual’s name and post office address in case the Committee needs to request further information. ProposingRevisions. Revisions are made periodically tothe Code toincorporatechanges thatappearnecessary or desirable, as demonstrated by the experience gained from the application of the procedures, and in order to conform to developments in the elevator art. Approved revisions will be published periodically. The Committee welcomes proposals for revisions to this Code. Such proposals should be as specific as possi- ble, citing the Section number(s), the proposed wording, and a detailed descriptionofthe reasons for the proposal including any pertinent documentation.
