NFPA seeks comments

The NFPA is seeking comments on proposed tentative interim amendments.

06/02/2009


 

Tentative Interim Amendments

(TIAs) proposed to the NFPA are published for public review and comment

and also forwarded to the responsible Technical Committee and Technical

Correlating Committee for processing. 

Anyone may submit a comment on a proposed TIA by the closing date indicated. To

submit a comment (on company letterhead), please identify the number of

the TIA and forward to the Secretary, Standards Council, 1 Batterymarch

Park, Quincy, MA 02169-7471. 

The Technical Committee considers comments received by the date indicated

before final action is taken on the proposed TIA. The Standards Council then

reviews the technical committee's ballot results, the public comments, and any

other information that has been submitted to determine whether to issue the

TIA. Anyone wishing to address the Council should contact the Codes and Standards

Administration Department .

 

A TIA is tentative because

it has not been processed through the entire codes  and standards making procedures. It is interim

because it is effective only between editions of the document. A TIA

automatically becomes a proposal of the proponent for the next edition of the

document. As such, it then is subject to all of the procedures of the codes 

and standards making process .
