  • NFPA 408, Errata 408-10-1, referencing 1.2.3 of the 2010 edition, issued: July 14, 2015
  • NFPA 409, Errata 409-16-1, referencing 7.5.3 of the 2016 edition, issued: July 14, 2015

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.

Good Morning! In NFPA 58, specifically 5.27.3, there are numerous requirements for a Fire Safety Analysis (FSA). However, a well written FSA includes multiple sections of engineering analysis that are not included in 5.27.3 (as NFPA 58 will only have the minimum safety requirements). It was with the user in mind that NFPA and NPGA (National Propane Gas Association) developed the Fire Safety Analysis Manual for LP Gas Storage Facilities. This detailed report (for the 2011 edition) is a great step-by-step guide on how to develop an FSA for your facility, and can even assist in inspecting one. It can be found on the NFPA Website:
