Read the NFPA Standards Council agenda to find out what items will be addressed at its meeting on October 17-18 at the Hyatt Regency, Savannah, GA. 

At this meeting, the Council will:

  • act on the issuance of proposed TIAs on NFPA 20, 51A, 70, 407, 1911
  • review two new projects:  guide for using large buildings for mass shelters; and a document as a screening fire test standard for textiles based on the Small Scale test method

The NFPA Standards Council is a 13-person committee appointed by the NFPA Board of Directors that oversees the Association's codes and standards development activities, administers the rules and regulations, and acts as an appeals body. The Council administers about 250 NFPA Technical Committees and their work on nearly 300 documents addressing topics of importance to the built environment.
