The article reports that FM Approvals is set to work on a new standard that will address the concerns of the land-mobile-radio (LMR) industry on the proposed changes to the intrinsic-safety (IS) standard which will be effective by the end of 2011. The proposal of FM Approvals for a new LMR standard was published by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in March 2011. The proposal for the LMR standard aims to utilize a double-protection method that will ensure the operation of the radios in hazardous environments.
