At its March 2014 meeting, the NFPA Standards Council considered the issuance of several proposed Tentative Interim Amendments (TIA).  The following TIAs on NFPA 13, NFPA 30A, NFPA 30B, NFPA 59A, NFPA 70, NFPA 99, NFPA 664, NFPA 1981 and NFPA 1982 were issued by the Council on March 3, 2014:

  • NFPA 30A, TIA 15-1, referencing Table 12.6.2
  • NFPA 30B, TIA 15-1, referencing 5.15 and A.15(New)
  • NFPA 59A, TIA 13-2, referencing Table 15.8.4.2

  • NFPA 99, TIA 12-6, referencing 11.5.1.1.2 through 11.5.1.1.4 and A.11.5.1.1.2 through A.11.5.1.1.3
  • NFPA 664, TIA 12-1, referencing 8.2.2.2.3 through 8.2.2.2.6

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