The NFPA Standards Council considered the issuance of  a proposed Tentative Interim Amendment (TIA) on the 2017 edition of NFPA 70, National Electrical Code.  This TIA was issued by the Council on March 14, 2017:


  • NFPA 70, TIA 17-3, referencing 770.110(A)(2)


Tentative Interim Amendments (TIAs) are amendments to an NFPA Standard processed in accordance with Section 5 of the Regulations Governing the Development of NFPA Standards. They have not gone through the entire standards development process of being published in a First Draft Report and Second Draft Report for review and comment. TIAs are effective only between editions of the Standard. A TIA automatically becomes a public input for the next edition of the Standard, 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 Standard after being issued by the Standards Council.
