Civil Engineers Call For Public Comment Period
December 19, 2006

The Transportation and Development Institute of the American
Society of Civil Engineers (T&DI/ASCE) recently announced it will conduct a public comment period on Part 4 of its Automated People Movers (APM) standard (ASCE 21). In order to expedite the approval and release process, as well as to facilitate ease of use, the standard has been divided into four parts. Part 4 includes: operational monitoring, emergency preparedness,
verification requirements, security requirements, and application specific acceptance requirements.

The standard establishes minimum requirements for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of APM systems, and is used in the safety certification process. The public comment period for Part 4 of the standard will be held from January 18, 2007, to March 4, 2007.

To participate in the public comment period, contact Phillip Mariscal, ASCE Standards Administrator, at or (703) 295-6338. For more information on the standard, or ASCE’s standards program, please contact Joan Buhrman at or (703) 295-6406.
