Read the NFPA Standards Council preliminary minutes to see the results of the items addressed at its meeting on March 3-4 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
At its meeting, the Council considered some of the following items:

  • consider a standard of a new test method to evaluate fire/ignition resistance of upholstered furniture subject to a flaming ignition source
  • consider a standard on the selection, care, and maintenance (SCAM) of wildland fire fighting clothing and equipment
  • reorganization of the Forest and Rural Fire Protection Committee
  • consider requests from Committees to change revision cycle schedules

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.
