History of the ATV Standard
In 1985, the SVIA began development of a standard, which established the requirements
for equipment, configuration, and performance of four-wheel all-terrain vehicles
in the United States. In 1990, the ANSI approved the first standard for all-terrain
vehicles. In 2001, the standard was revised to modify certain definitional language
and add several provisions to enhance and clarify the standard. In 2007, the standard
was updated to include definitions for Type I and Type II ATVs; new Y-10+ and T
category ATVs; requirements of Type II ATV passenger handholds and footrests; new
requirements for labels, owner’s manuals, hang tags; and a compliance certification
label. The standard was further refined in 2010 to retain the Y12+ Category, updated
label requirements, and incorporate the interpretations from the previous editions.
