Five NFPA Standards, reporting in the Fall 2015 revision cycle, have been issued by the NFPA Standards Council as Consent Standards:

  • NFPA 102, Standard for Grandstands, Folding and Telescopic Seating, Tents, and Membrane Structures

  • NFPA 1984, Standard on Respirators for Wildland Fire Fighting Operations

NFPA 102, NFPA 115 and NFPA 1405 did not receive any Public Comments, and the Technical Committees determined that no further revisions were needed to the Standards.  A notice was published in accordance with the Regs announcing no further meeting was needed along with a notice that an appeal could be filed on the Issuance of these documents.  No appeals were filed and the Standards Council acted by ballot to issue the standards.  NFPA 102, 115, and 1405 were issued by the Standards Council on January 28, 2015.

NFPA 551 and NFPA 1984 did not receive any Public Comments, and the Technical Committees determined that no further revisions were needed to the Standards. (The Respiratory Protection Equipment Committee, who is responsible for NFPA 1984, did hold a second revision meeting resulting in no Second Revisions.)  A notice was published in accordance with the Regs announcing no further meeting was needed along with a notice that an appeal could be filed on the issuance of these documents.  No appeals were filed and the Standards Council acted by ballot to issue the standards.  NFPA 551 and 1984 were issued by the Standards Council on February 13, 2015.
