The industry is on the verge of the release of ANSI/TIA 322 and A10.48. The question is that with 1019-A being replaced by these standards which of these should someone follow to be compliant on a site. It is apparent that if a contractor is following the requirements of ANSI/TIA 322 and ASSE A10.48 they will meet or exceed the requirements of ANSI/TIA 1019-A. Is this a correct presumption?

The intent of TIA for the next revision cycle of TIA-1019-A was to publish a new Standard TIA-322 that would contain the engineering loading and other criteria related to the construction activities for communications structures and to coordinate the transfer of the construction means and method criteria to the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) published as a new Standard ASSE A10.48. Both Standards are slated to be published in the 4th quarter of 2016. During the transition period until the TIA-1019-A Standard is withdrawn, it is the intent of TIA to either use the provisions of the TIA-1019-A Standard or the provisions of the TIA-322 in conjunction with the provisions of ASSE 10.48 Standard.
