Safety & Standards Committee

The mission of the ABMA Safety & Standards Committee is threefold:

  2. Review proposed new standards; and
  3. Develop means to assist Members in coping with their product liability problems.

It advises members of new developments affecting the industry. Maintains liaisons with other industry organizations and standards development committees. Interfaces with the Product Liability Prevention and Defense Group and other coalitions seeking tort reform.

It is preferred that Committee members have a familiarity with standards writing and an engineering background.
