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 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 Annual 2016 revision cycle that received public inputs, links are now 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. Please note that NFPA 70 has a public input closing date of November 7, 2014 and, therefore, will have a link available for viewing at a later date. To view a complete list of the Annual 2016 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 feel free to contact us.
