The steps for initating a new technical committee project are:
Download and complete the form "Request for Development of a New Standard" Note that proposals must be accompanied by contact information for six (6) industry volunteers who have agreed to act as a task group to develop a preliminary draft. Justification for development, a scope, and an outline of the proposed standard must be submitted with the proposal.
Return the completed form to Aimée Beggs (877.281.7772 x 2223) at SSPC.
SSPC will forward the completed proposal to the SSPC Standards Review Committee (SRC)
The Standards Review Committee (SRC) has 30 days to evaluate and respond to each proposal. Once the proposal is approved, the individual proposing the project will be informed by e-mail and an announcement of formation of a new committee will be posted on SSPC.org.
