At its October 2014 meeting, the NFPA Standards Council considered the issuance of several proposed Tentative Interim Amendments (TIAs).  The following TIAs on NFPA 70, NFPA 1951, and NFPA 1971 were issued by the Council on October 28, 2014:

  • NFPA 70, TIA 14-7, referencing 517.41(E)
  • NFPA 1951, TIA 13-3, referencing 5.2.4(8)(New),, and A.
  • NFPA 1971, TIA 13-4, referencing 5.4.4(8)(New), and A.

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.
