At its March 5-6, 2012 meeting, the NFPA Standards Council considered the issuance of several proposed Tentative Interim Amendments (TIA).  The following TIAs on NFPA 13D, NFPA 30B, NFPA 51A, and NFPA 75 were issued by the Council on March 6, 2012:

  • NFPA 13D, TIA 10-4, Referencing Section 6.5.3 
  • NFPA 30B, TIA 11-1, Referencing Sections 2.3.2, 6.1.1,, A., A., and 6.2.2

  • NFPA 75, TIA 09-1, Referencing Sections 10.4.4 and A.10.4.4 

Tentative Interim Amendments (TIAs) are amendments to an NFPA document processed in accordance with Section 5 of the Regulations Governing Committee Projects.They have not gone through the entire codes and standards-making process of being published in an ROP and ROC for review and comment. TIAs are effective only between editions of the document. A TIA automatically becomes a proposal for the next edition of the document, as such is then subject to all of the procedures of the codes and standards making process.  TIAs are published in NFPA News, NFCSS, and any further distribution of the document after being issued by the Standards Council.
