PHTA Seeks User-Consumer Participants for Standards Consensus Committee

Phta Tile

PHTA has expanded its interest categories and is currently seeking User-Consumer interest category participants to serve on the Standards Consensus Committee official consensus voting body. The SCC is responsible for reviewing and voting on all pool and hot tub performance standards to be approved by the American National Standards Institute.

The User-Consumer interest category is defined as "any individual/entity that uses swimming pools, spas, swim spas, and hot tubs or components. This includes but is not limited to homeowners, owners or operators of, or service professionals engaged with swimming pools, spas, swim spas or hot tubs, or members of consumer and public safety advocate organizations."

"There are approximately 10.4 million residential pools in the U.S. and the expansion of our interest categories demonstrates the industry's commitment to providing an avenue for consumers to provide input on our consensus standards," says PHTA Director of Standards Susan J. Hilaski. "User-Consumer participation is vital to the success of our standards development process."

To be considered for a User-Consumer position on the SCC, applicants must complete the SCC Application Form by September 25, 2020 and adhere to PHTA's Procedures for American National Standards, Antitrust Policy, and Volunteer Code of Conduct.
