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 and is then subject to all of the procedures of the standards development process. TIAs are published in NFPA News, Codes Online, and included in any further distribution of the standard after being issued by the Standards Council.    
An errata is a correction issued to an NFPA Standard, published in NFPA News, Codes Online, and included in any further distribution of the document.
