ESA Seeking Standard Proposals

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 will begin that review process on Aug. 1, 2011.

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 two-month period, concluding at 5:00pm CDT on Sept. 30, 2011, 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. This comment period will occur during the 4th quarter of 2011.  Individuals interested in submitting a proposal can find a copy of the current standard and the approved submission form on the ESA Codes and Standards <http://www.esaweb.org/?Page=Codes_Standards>  webpage.  All proposals must be submitted on the prescribed form and prior to the published submission deadline to ESA, 2300 Valley View Lane, Suite 230, Irving, TX 75062.
