The Industrial Truck Standards Development Foundation (ITSDF) was formed in 2005 to administer the B56 Standards Committee.

The B56 Standards Committee’s scope is the establishment of the safety requirements relating to the elements of design, operation, and maintenance, the standardization relating to principal dimensions to facilitate interchangeability, and establishment of test methods and test procedures, for powered and non-powered industrial trucks (not including vehicles intended primarily for earth-moving or over-the-road hauling) and wheels and casters. The Committee and ITSDF also maintain liaison with ISO in all matters pertaining to powered and non-powered industrial trucks.
