The Working Groups are the backbone of the 3-A SSI consensus document development process. The bulk of the standards development work is carried out by the 14 working groups, consisting of experts representing fabricators of related types of equipment, systems, and materials and representatives of the users and sanitarian stakeholder groups. Explore each group below.
Note: 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc. (3-A SSI) has moved to an “A- and B-level” document hierarchy. With an A/B level standards system, the general overall equipment sanitary requirements are contained in a master, or base, “A-level” General Requirements Standard. The technical requirements unique to the specific equipment within the scope of the standard are contained in the “B-level” Standard.
