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 development 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. For documents in the Fall 2014 revision cycle that received public comments, links are now available to “View Public Comments” on each Next edition tab of the document information pages under the category “Second Draft”. You will be asked to sign-in or create a free online account with NFPA before using this system. Please note that the following 17 documents did not receive any public comments and, therefore, will not have a link available for viewing: NFPA 122, NFPA 276, NFPA 326, NFPA 329, NFPA 410, NFPA 601, NFPA 853, NFPA 950, NFPA 1003, NFPA 1201, NFPA 1250, NFPA 1407, NFPA 1452, NFPA 1581, NFPA 1583, NFPA 1931, and NFPA 1932.
To view a complete list of the Fall 2014 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.
