January 5th, 2015 marks a major milestone in the enhancement of NFPA’s online platform: the first  Public Input closing date for which all materials will be submitted online.  Beginning with the 44 Fall 2016 NFPA Standards, paper submissions will no longer be accepted. By utilizing a completely online platform, NFPA will facilitate wider and easier participation in the development of its Standards. As an organization, this transition is yet another step forward as NFPA continues to promote a digital first approach focused on solution-based products and services. 

Thank you to all NFPA participants for embracing the enhancements and NFPA’s online platform. 

If you have not yet submitted your Public Input, and there exists a particular standard that interests you, please go online to submit prior to the January 5, 2015 deadline.  Simply, go to the next edition tab on the relevant document information page and click “The next edition of this standard is now open for Public Input" or the "Submit Public Input online” link to get started. If you have any questions or need assistance with the online submission system for public input or public comment, please feel free to contact us at 617-984-7242, or via email at
