Standards Consensus Committee (SCC)

APSP has reaccredited its procedures with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as a Standards Developing Organization. In doing so, APSP has created the APSP Standards Consensus Committee (SCC) in accordance with ANSI essential requirements and due process requirements for American National Standards. This consensus committee is responsible for voting on the technical content of each of the ANSI/APSP standards.

The Standards Consensus Committee (SCC) comprises a balance of 10 members from each of the following interest categories:

Producer. Manufacturer, builder, or installer of swimming pools, spas and hot tubs or components.

User. Any individual/entity that uses swimming pools, spas, swim spas and hot tubs or components. This includes but is not limited to federal, state, or local regulatory agency or department for public safety. The entity may also have the responsibility of regulating or monitoring swimming pools, spas, or hot tubs.

General Interest. An entity or individual with expertise in swimming pools, but that neither produces nor uses them directly. This category includes but is not limited to consultants, academia, insurance companies, testing laboratories (that test or certify pool and spa components against standards) public interest organizations, and “not-for-profits” having an interest in pools, spas/hot tubs
