International Staple, Nail and Tool Association Announces Renewal Process for ANSI SNT-101-2015 


ISANTA has announced that the renewal is underway and scheduled to be completed by November 2024. Watch for announcements as the process continues.


ISANTA is active in aiding in the development of safety standards, and has its own safety standard ANSI SNT-101-2015: Safety Requirements for Portable, Compressed-Air-Actuated, Fastener-Driving Tools. This standard contains safety requirements for tool manufacturers, tool purchasers, and tool operators and is intended to provide safeguards for persons and property from accidental hazards arising from the use of air-actuated fastening tools. It is also intended to assist government and other regulatory bodies in the development, promulgation, and enforcement of appropriate safety directives.  This is the standard adopted in the USA. Users of the ISANTA website may view, print, download, or otherwise save copies of ANSI SNT-101-2015 for their own personal or internal business purposes. No other use, including reproduction, retransmission, editing, or distribution, by sale or otherwise, of this publication may be made without the prior written permission of ISANTA.
