The HMI has launched the Program for manual hoists, manual and powered trolleys, powered chain hoists, and powered wire rope hoists.

The MMA Certified Program is for enclosed track workstation cranes, monorails and patented track systems.

MMA-Certified products meet the American National Standards (ANSI) MH27.1 or MH27.2 Specifications, and are properly supported in the market.

The initiative is designed to instill confidence in product specifiers and end users through evidence that the certified products meet one or more recognised standards, and that the products are properly supported in the market.

The certifications consist of two sections. The first section consists of a review by a registered professional engineer to determine that the product design meets or exceeds the design requirements, while the second section addresses service and support.
