Click here for our Multimedia page to view the recorded presentation

Last December, NTS sponsored a free, one hour informational webinar on the testing and requirements for the California Special Seismic requirements found in AC-156. Manufacturers of equipment for installation into California hospitals would be interested in this webinar to better understand these and other areas:

- What equipment must be tested?
- Configurations for testing (i.e. family of product lines)?
- New requirements per November 1, 2010 reissue?
- Future considerations for equipment, as well as test levels per OSHPD?
