within the Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI) of the American
Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). ASCE is an American National
Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited Standards Development Organization (SDO).
purpose of the Automated People Movers Standards Committee is to develop
Standards for automated people movers. These Standards establish the
minimum set of requirements necessary to achieve an acceptable level of
safety and performance for an APM system.
The APM Standards Committee
developed and maintains the Standards following a
consensus process and rules administered by the ASCE Codes and Standards
Committee (CSC) in conformance with ANSI rules for standards. The consensus
process requires balloting by a balanced committee of individuals representing APM consumers, producers, general interest, and regulators.
Membership information can be found under the "Members" link.
These Standards are published as ASCE 21.
