The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) Master Format provides the framework for the organization of work in construction projects. CSI Division 28 deals specifically with Electronic Safety & Security, but has had no meaningful revision within the past 10 years. Led by SIA, SecuritySpecifiers.com, and CSI, an effort has been initiated to address this area, with the participation of dozens of industry consultants, manufacturers, and integrators. This session, conducted by members of this task force, will review the industry’s recommendations for updating Division 28, including the addition of many new product and technology areas. This session is a must for anyone who writes CSI compliant product or project specifications, as well as those who must interpret, bid or follow them. Refreshments will be served.

Note: Seating is limited. Priority will be given to consultants, designers, task force contributors, and sponsoring companies.
