Submit a Change Request for Industry Standards and Codes

All PHTA standards undergo regular review and are revised as appropriate to ensure they are up-to-date and relevant. Any individual may submit a request to change any PHTA standard at any time. The request for change will be considered during the next revision cycle. PHTA generally updates each standard at least every four years.
