As of May 2008, the PCSA (Power Crane and Shovel Association) and MOTACC (Manufacturers of Telescoping and Articulated Cranes Committee) passed a motion to merge into the Crane Statistics Committee. The statistical programs will remain independent of each other maintain separate rules and parameters.
