ESA Seeking Standard Proposals
Standard for Remote Supervising Station Undergoing Periodic Review
Irving, Texas (March 7, 2012) — In 2007, the Electronic Security Association (ESA) received approval for ESA’s first standard, ANSI/ESA SRSS-01-2007, the Standard for Remote Supervising Station. This standard, developed by ESA, provided a guide for the monitoring of fire alarm systems at a remote station as identified in NFPA 72
In compliance with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) requirements, all approved guidelines must undergo periodic review, and ESA’s standard began that review process on March 6, 2012. The first step in this review process is the solicitation of proposals from industry stakeholders for proposed changes, additions or modifications to the existing standard. During a one-month period, concluding at 5 p.m. CDT on April 6, 2012, ESA will be accepting these proposed changes to the standard.
The second step in the review process consists of the ESA Standards Committee reviewing all proposed changes and then seeking industry comments on the proposed changes received.
Individuals interested in submitting a proposal can find a copy of the current standard and the approved submission form at http://www.esaweb.org/?Page=Codes_Standards. All proposals must be submitted on the prescribed form and prior to the published submission deadline to ESA, 6333 N. State Highway 161, Suite 350, Irving, TX 75038.
