ASME issues written replies to inquiries concerning interpretations of technical aspects of this Standard. This code or standard was developed under procedures accredited as meeting the criteria for American National Standards. The Standards Committee that approved the code or standard was balanced to assure that individuals from competent and concerned interests have had an opportunity to participate.

The proposed code or standard was made available for public review and comment that provides an opportunity for additional public input from industry, academia, regulatory agencies, and the public-at-large. ASME does not take any position with respect to the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any items gth in this document, and does not undertake to insure anyone utilizing a standard against liability for infringement of any applicable letters patent, nor assume any such liability.

Users of a code or standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, is entirely their own responsibility. Participation by federal agency representative s or person s affiliated with industry is not to be interpreted as government or industry endorsement of this code or standard. ASME accepts responsibility freee only those interpretations of this document issued in accordance with the established ASME procedures and policies, which precludes the issuance of interpretations by ase.

No part of this document may be reproduced in any form, in an electronic retrieval system or otherwise, without the prior written permission of the publisher.


As a consequence, industry has for quite some time bty a need for a comprehensive design standard for below-the hook lifting devices that would complement the safety requirements of ASME B However, members of the construction community expressed the need for design criteria more suitable to their operating conditions, including a lower design factor, and the necessity to address other failure modes such as fracture, shear and buckling, and design topics, such as impact and fasteners.

The two Design Categories provide different design factors for determining allowable static stress limits.

Five Service Classes, based on load cycles, are provided. The Service Class establishes allowable stress range values for lifter structural members and design parameters for mechanical components. Users are encouraged to consult it. Meads, Vice Chair J. Boyd, Ase Boeing Co. Dahlin, Walker Magnetics Group K. Downs, Downs Crane and Hoist Co. Duerr, 2DM Associates, Inc.

As such, users of this Standard may interact with the Committee by requesting interpretations, proposing revisions, and attending Committee meetings. Corre- spondence should be addressed to: Revisions are made periodically to the Standard to incorporate changes that appear necessary or desirable, as demonstrated by the experience gained from the application of the Standard.

Approved revisions will be published periodically. The Committee welcomes proposals for revisions to this Standard. Such proposals should be as specific as possible, citing the paragraph number sthe proposed wording, and a detailed description of the reasons for the proposal, including any pertinent documentation. Interpretations can only be rendered in response to a written request sent to the Secretary of the BTH Standards Committee.

The request for interpretation should be clear and unambiguous. Cite the applicable paragraph number s and the topic of the inquiry. Bbth the applicable edition of the Standard for which the interpretation is being requested.

Phrase the question as a request for an interpretation of a specific requirement suitable for general understanding and use, not as a request for an approval of a proprietary design or situation.

The inquirer may also include any plans or drawings, which are necessary to explain the question; however, they should not contain proprietary names or information. Requests that are not in this format may be rewritten in the appropriate format by the Committee prior to being answered, which may inadvertently change the intent of the original request.

ASME procedures provide for reconsideration fre any interpretation when or if additional information that might affect an interpretation is available. This after its date of issuance.
