From August 12-17, 2012, NFPA 101 and NFPA 5000’s occupancy specific Technical Committees, composed of over 180 members, will be holding their First Draft meetings in St. Louis, MO. This past May, the eight core chapter Technical Committees for NFPA 101 and NFPA 5000 held their First Draft meetings in Indianapolis, IN.
This cycle marks the first cycle in which these documents will be operating under NFPA’s new standards development process. At the upcoming meetings, the occupancy committees will be addressing over 400 proposed changes for the 2015 editions. Information related to the revision of the next editions can be found under the “Next Edition” tab of their respective Document Information Pages – NFPA 101 and NFPA 5000.
NFPA Technical Committee meetings are open to the public and to guests and we welcome your attendance. Guests wishing to address the Technical Committee or Correlating Committee on an issue shall notify the Committee Chair or NFPA Staff Liaison in writing at least 7 days before the meeting. If you are in the St. Louis area in August, stop in to the NFPA 101 and NFPA 5000 meetings and learn about the latest and greatest Code issues being discussed by our experts. We hope to see you there!
