A14 Committee Overview

The Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) A14 assumes the responsibility for developing the Standards which govern design, construction, testing, selection, care, and safe use of ladders. Eight Standards are currently developed by the A14 Committee, and are sold to manufacturers, contractors, governmental agencies and those in the legal profession. Subcommittees exist for each standard, headed by a Chair and comprised of subject experts; standards are revised on a five-year cycle.

The subgroups are responsible for the definitive content of one or more standards and for responding to views and objectives thereon. Such subgroups shall maintain a membership roster. The subgroup is responsible for the Committee (e.g. drafting all or a portion of a Standard, drafting responses to comments, drafting positions on International Standards, or other purely advisory functions).
