Division 28 Update

CSI Member

SecuritySpecifiers and the Security Industry Association (SIA) have taken the lead in working with the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) to recommend updates for the 2015 MasterFormat. MasterFormat is CSI’s master list of titles and numbers used to organize specifications and other project information for most commercial building design and construction projects in North America. Recommended changes primarily affect MasterFormat Division 28, Electronic Safety and Security, but other divisions are also impacted. Nearly 100 volunteers – consultants, integrators, manufacturers, have been somehow involved in this effort. THESE ARE ONLY RECOMMENDATIONS. CSI will consider these in its normal review cycle, with a final determination made by Q4 of this year. SIA will maintain the Division 28 Update Committee going forward as a vehicle for making future recommendations. E-mail comments and questions to division28@securityspecifiers.com.
