Last November, NFPA's Board of Directors approved a comprehensive set of changes to the regulations that govern the Association's standards development process. Amy Cronin, division manager of NFPA's Codes and Standards Administration, and secretary to the Standards Council, provides an overview of the new regulations.
The new regulations will be in effect for NFPA documents reporting in the Fall 2013 Revision Cycle and all subsequent revision cycles. Documents reporting up to and including the Annual 2013 cycle will operate under the current regulations. During the transition period, NFPA standards development will be operating under two sets of regulations.
