Open--Acceptable Response: Response by recipient indicates a planned action that would comply with the safety recommendation when completed.
Open--Acceptable Alternate Response: Response by recipient indicates an alternate plan or implementation program that would satisfy the objective of the safety recommendation when implemented.
Open--Unacceptable Response: Response by recipient expresses disagreement with the need outlined in the recommendation or attempts to convince the Board (unsuccessfully) that an alternative course of action is acceptable. The Board believes, however, that there is enough supporting evidence to ask the recipient to reconsider its position. This status can also be used when the Board believes that action is not being taken in a timely manner.
Open--Response Received: Response has been received from recipient, but staff evaluation of the response has not been approved by the Board Members.
Open--Await Response: When a safety recommendation is issued, the status "Open-Await Response" is automatically assigned.
