The following Standards were issued by the NFPA Standards Council as Consent Standards and therefore, do not have a Second Draft Report:
  • NFPA 16, Standard for the Installation of Foam-Water Sprinkler and Foam-Water Spray Systems - issued: May 5, 2018
  • NFPA 211, Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents, and Solid Fuel-Burning Appliances - issued: 7/26/2018
  • NFPA 551, Guide for the Evaluation of Fire Risk Assessment - issued: 3/15/2018
The following Standard was determined for withdrawal by the Committee as the material is being incorporated into NFPA 1964, Standard for Spray Nozzles.  This Standard is being balloted on the withdrawal by the NFPA Standards Council. 
The Second Draft Reports will be delayed for the following two Standards and thus, will have revised NITMAM closing dates:
  • NFPA 59A, Standard for the Production, Storage, and Handling of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)
  • NFPA 1851, Standard on Selection, Care, and Maintenance of Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting
