ASSE recognizes the importance and benefits of input from a variety of industry stakeholders in order to develop the best standards and performance documents. Listing Evaluation Criteria (LEC) are Other Recognized Documents (ORD’s) that establish the initial rules for unique products in the marketplace. An LEC is an opportunity for new devices to gain a footing in the marketplace when combined with 3rd-party certification.
An LEC is valid for 5 years from publication date. At that point, the ASSE Product Standards Committee (PSC) will observe its market acceptance and decide the appropriate route for it in partnership with the original requester.
All public comments are reviewed after the end of the 20-day public review period by the PSC and are resolved to the best ability of the PSC and the commenter. Comments must include the following:
