NEW YORK — ESTA announced that the draft standard, BSR E1.23 — 200x, Entertainment Technology —Design and Execution  of Theatrical Fog Effects, is available for public review through  June 22. The BSR E1.23 project is a revision of the existing ANSI E1.23 — 2006 standard, which offers advice on the planning and execution of theatrical fog effects using glycol, glycerin, or white  mineral oil fogs or mists in theatres, arenas, and other places of  entertainment or public assembly.  

To review the proposed standard,  go to at

The purpose of the revision project is, first, to change  the list of fog chemicals in the scope to better match those chemicals  normally used in theatrical fog effects, and second, to better define the  qualifications of those in charge of designing and executing the effects.  

ESTA invited reviewers to submit comments on whether or not the new draft standard offers  adequate advice and to notify ESTA of any protected  intellectual property in the draft standard on the public review response form. Comments must be received by the end of the day UTC on June 22.  When June 23 starts, the review is over, and the links on the ESTA Web site to the document, the review form, and so on, will disappear.  

For more information, please contact Karl G. Ruling, Technical Standards Manager, ESTA, 875 Sixth Avenue, Suite 1005, New York, NY  10001, 212.244.1505; or email
