Decision to Approve ANSI/ACCT 03-2016 as an American National Standard (ANS) is Reaffirmed

On December 8th, 2016 the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) was notified by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) that the appeal filed by the Professional Ropes Course Association (PRCA) with the ANSI Appeals Board of the ANSI Board of Standards Review’s (BSR) Decision to Approve ACCT 03-2016 Challenge Course and Canopy/Zip Line Tour Standards as an American National Standard (ANS) has been dismissed.

In its final notice, ANSI wrote that “the appeals statement and supporting documentation that was submitted by PRCA with respect to the above-referenced appeal, together with all of the appeals documentation submitted in connection with the BSR appeals hearing, was provided to a Panel of the ANSI Appeals Board via letter ballot. The Appeals Board letter ballot was issued in accordance with clause 11 Appeals Process of the ANSI Appeals Board Operating Procedures in order for the Appeals Board Panel to determine whether the appellant has established a prima facie case that the decision appealed from was clearly erroneous. The Appeals Board Panel decided, based on the record before it, that the appellant [PRCA] has not established such aprima facie case. Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed and a hearing will not be held.”

This decision completes the appeals processes available at ANSI.
