ITSDF: Industrial Truck Standards Development Foundation

ITSDF, the Industrial Truck Standards Development Foundation, was formed in 2005 to administer the B56 Standards Committee. The B56 Standards Committee’s scope is the establishment of safety requirements relating to the elements of design, operation, and maintenance, as well as standardization relating to principal dimensions to facilitate interchangeability, and the establishment of test methods and test procedures for powered and non-powered industrial trucks (not including vehicles intended primarily for earth-moving or over-the-road hauling) and wheels and casters. Standards from ITSDF are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: StandardsSubscriptions@ansi.org or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.
