Blog Post created by Debra Baio Employee on Sep 11, 2015

NFPA Standards in the Fall 2017 revision cycle are accepting Public Input through NFPA's online submission system. 

To submit Public Input using the online system, select the Standard from the list of NFPA codes and standards or search for any document available for public input using the search feature in the gray box. Once on the specific document information page, select "The next edition of this standard is now open for Public Input (formerly proposals)" to begin the process. The system shows any changes made by the submitter in legislative text.  You have the option of submitting the input right away or saving it for later completion before the closing date.
