RESNET Consensus Standards

All ANSI/RESNET American National Standards (ANS) are under Continuous Maintenance in accordance with Section 10.9 of the RESNET ANSI Standards Development Policy and Procedures. All portions of the standards are open to revision and any person may submit amendment proposals. Proposals are submitted to the RESNET Manager of Standards using the online form on webpage Submitting Proposed Amendments to Approved ANSI/RESNET Standards and Proposed New Candidate ANSI/RESNET Standards. Proposals will be reviewed by the Standards Management Board to determine if they are critical. Critical proposed revisions will be assigned as a New Work Item to a Standards Development Committee immediately. Proposals not determine critical will be assigned to the Standards Development Committee at the time of the next update of the respective standard. RESNET standards are updated a minimum of every five years.

Interested parties may also propose new standards in accordance with the RESNET ANSI Standards Development Policy and Procedures using the online form on webpage, Submitting Proposed Amendments to Approved ANSI/RESNET Standards and Proposed New Candidate ANSI/RESNET Standards. Proposals will be reviewed by the Standards Management Board to determine if a proposed new standard fits within the scope of standards RESNET wants to develop. If the proposal is accepted, a New Work Item (NWI) be will assigned to the Standards Development Committee (SDC) for development.
