At its March 2013 meeting, the NFPA Standards Council considered and reviewed a request that NFPA establish a new standard for the application of hybrid, gas, and fine water droplet systems.

After review of all the material before it, the Council voted to publish a notice to solicit public comment on the need for the project, information on resources on the subject matter, those interested in participating if established or have experience in the intended application of this technology, and as such, would be affected by the development of an installation standard.  The Council is specifically looking for manufacturers that are actively developing hybrid droplet systems and whether there are enough common installation practices and procedures available to support a standard, and the intended application for this technology.  The Council is also seeking input on whether the subject matter could be covered by an existing technical committee or possibly through the creation of a new document.  Read Standards Council agenda item 13-3-20 for additional background.

Anyone wishing to submit a comment on this proposed new standard, please forward to the NFPA Secretary of the Standards Council by the May 30, 2013 deadline.
