A simplified way for the public to view public inputs and public comments

Blog Post created by debbiebaio Employee on Jul 31, 2013

As we continue to enhance our standards development site, NFPA looks for ways to make it easier for the public to get involved and participate in our codes and standards process. 

A recent feature added in the standard development site is the capability for the public to “View Public Inputs” and “View Public Comments” after all submissions have been completed.  Starting with documents in the Annual 2015 cycle, with the exception of NFPA 1730 which has a public input closing date of September 9, 2013, links are available to “View Public Inputs” on each Next edition tab of the document information pages under the category “First Draft”. You will be asked to sign-in or create a free online account with NFPA before using this system.

To view a complete list of the Annual 2015 documents, go to the document information pages and use the search feature in the upper right gray box to search by cycle. 

Please be advised, that it is anticipated that in the future, paper submissions for public input and public comment will not be accepted so please take this opportunity to try out the system – we think you’ll really like it! As always we are here to help you participate in the NFPA process.

If you have any questions or need help with any feature of the Standards Development site, please contact us via email at
