"This edition of the Handbook reflects harmonization effort between the ASME A17.1, Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators and CSA B44, Safety Code for Elevators. Since 2000, editions of both the CSA B44 and the A17.1-2000 Codes are identical except for several application deviations noted in B44. This has resulted from a joint effort of the CSA B44 Technical Committee and the ASME A17.1 Standards Committee to harmonize requirements between CSA B44 and ASME A17.1. The harmonization process compared and studied differences between the two codes over a number of years through discussions by joint ASME/CSA working groups. A harmonized requirement was formulated and proposed for review and approval through formal balloting by both the ASME A17 Standards Committee and CSA B44 Technical Committee."--p. vi.
"Throughout this Handbook, references are made to the ASME A17 Standards Committee and CSA B44 Technical Committee. The term, "ASME A17.1/CSA B44 Committee" is used for that purpose. References are also made to the Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators, ASME A17.1, and the Safety Code for Elevators, CSA B44. The term, "ASME A17.1/CSA B44 Code" is used for that purpose The reader should keep in mind these abbreviations are not intended to imply there is only one committee or one code."--p. vii.
"This edition of the ASME A17.1/CSA B44 Handbook emphasizes metric units. Where the ASME A17.1/CSA B44 Code recognizes either metric or imperial units, both are reflected in the Handbook commentary."--p. vii.
