>If you're involved in the purchase, design or installation of communications structures you'll want to read this article to stay abreast of the status of TIA/EIA-222-G. If you're not, or know of other individuals that will benefit from this information, please forward this email.
>To G or not to G: that is the question
>Revision G standard set for January introduction, but acceptance may take up to three or more years
>November 10, 2005 -- TIA/EIA-222-G will take effect January 1, 2006, but building departments may be years away from enforcing the long-awaited revision of the structural standard for antenna supporting structures and antennas.
>The short answer for the lengthy delay: TIA/EIA-222-G is a voluntary standard and has no legal bearing. It only gains formidable strength if it's referenced by the International Building Code (IBC) or any other code, and the code is adopted by a permitting jurisdiction.
>But the code referencing and adoption process is a long, sometimes arduous procedure that can oftentimes take years. For additional information, please see: <http://www.wirelessestimator.com/breaking_news.cfm>Rev G Acceptance <http://www.wirelessestimator.com/breaking_news.cfm> .
