This is the second edition of a Standard for elevator suspension and compensation systems as well as ropes for governor applications. The second edition includes standards for three technologies for elevators, namely:

Steel wire ropes
Aramid fiber ropes
Noncircular elastomeric-coated steel suspension members

Uniform standards for these important items are necessary to ensure consistent levels of safety and to provide guidance for the manufacturers of these items as well as the designers, manufacturers, installers, maintainers and inspectors of elevator equipment.

As other technologies emerge and are deemed to be suitable for similar applications, this Standard will be expanded to include criteria for their usage.
