This includes, but is not limited to: articulating- boom, container, gantry, mobile, pedestal, portal, tower and stacker cranes; balance-lifting units; below-the- hook lifting devices; cableways; derricks; jacks; hoists; hooks; loads suspended from rotorcraft; material place- ment systems; monorails; rigging hardware; and scrap and material handlers. This Standard does not apply to track and automo- tive jacks, railway or automobile wrecking cranes, ship- board cranes, shipboard cargo-handling equipment, well-drilling derricks, skip hoists, mine hoists, truck body hoists, car or barge pullers, conveyors, excavating equipment, or equipment falling within the scope of the following Committees: A10, A17, A90, A92, A120, B20, B56, and B77. SECTION II: PURPOSE This Standard is designed to (a) guard against and minimize injury to workers, and otherwise provide for the protection of life, limb, and property by prescribing safety requirements (b) provide direction to owners, employers, supervi- sors, and others concerned with, or responsible for, its application (c) guide governments and other regulatory bodies in the development, promulgation, and enforcement of ap- propriate safety directives SECTION III: INTERPRETATIONS Upon request, the B30 Committee will render an in- terpretation of any requirement of the Standard. Inter- pretations can only be rendered in response to a writ- ten request sent to the Secretary of the B30 Committee, ASME, Three Park Avenue, New York, NY 10016-5990. The request for interpretation should be clear and un- ambiguous. It is further recommended that the inquirer submit his request utilizing the following format. Subject: Cite the applicable paragraph number(s) and provide a concise description. Edition: Cite the applicable edition of the pertinent volume for which the interpretation is be- ing requested. Question: Phrase the question as a request for an in- terpretation of a specific requirement suit- able for general understanding and use, not as a request for approval of a proprietary design or situation. The inquirer may also include any plans or drawings that are nec- essary to explain the question; however, they should not contain any proprietary names or information. Requests that are not in this format will be rewritten in this format by the Committee prior to being an- swered, which could change the intent of the original request. ASME procedures provide for reconsideration of any interpretation when or if additional information that might affect an interpretation is available. Fur- ther, persons aggrieved by an interpretation may ap- peal to the cognizant ASME Committee or Subcom- mittee. ASME does not “approve,” “certify,” “rate,” or “endorse” any item, construction, proprietary device, or activity. SECTION IV: NEW AND EXISTING INSTALLATIONS (a) Effective Date. The effective date of this volume for the purpose of defining new and existing installations shall be 1 year after its date of issuance. (b) New Installations. Construction, installation, in- spection, testing, maintenance, and operation of equip- ment manufactured and facilities constructed after the effective date of this volume shall conform to the mandatory requirements of this volume. (c) Existing Installations. Inspection, testing, mainte- nance, and operation of equipment manufactured and facilities constructed prior to the effective date of this volume shall be done, as applicable, in accordance with the requirements of this volume.

However, when an item is being modified, its performance requirement shall be re- viewed relative to the current volume. If the perform- ance differs substantially, the need to meet the current requirement shall be evaluated by a qualified person se- lected by the owner (user). Recommended changes shall be made by the owner (user) within 1 year.
