The NFPA Standards Council, upon request from the National Electrical Code® Correlating Committee, at its December 2016 meeting has decided to combine Code-Making Panels 6 and 7 to create a new Code-Making Panel (CMP) 6.  The new CMP 6 article assignments would be: Articles 310, 320, 322, 324, 326, 328, 330, 332, 334, 336, 338, 340, 382, 394, 396, 398, 399, 400, 402, Chapter 9, Tables 5 through 9 and Annex B. The Standards Council is also reassigning the work of Code-Making Panels 4 and 10. Articles 225 and 230 are reassigned from CMP 4 to CMP 10. In addition, Article 215 will be reassigned from CMP 2 to CMP 10. CMP 4 will now be assigned Articles 690, 691, 692, 694, 705, and 710. CMP 10 will be assigned Articles 215, 225, 230, and 240. CMP 19 will be renamed CMP 7 with no changes in article assignments. Representation is sought in all member classifications; specifically applicants with expertise and experience related to the work of the respective panels.


All existing members of the Panels, as well as other interested individuals, are asked to apply. NFPA Staff will return to the Council at the April 2017 meeting with a proposed start-up roster.


To apply for membership on any of these Panels, you must first sign-in on (Note: If you do not have an sign-in, you will be asked to create a free online account before using the application system).  Go to the Technical Committee tab of the NFPA 70 Document Information Page and select the link “Submit Code-Making Panel _ application online" to apply to the appropriate Panel by the February 14, 2017 deadline.
