NFPA 72, the National Fire Alarm Code, will see a number of significant changes in the 2007 edition after final voting at this year's annual World Safety Conference in Orlando June 4-8. Among the changes the organization is considering include: a provision for mass notification systems; a relaxing of the requirement for the protection of the control unit if a unit is protected by a sprinkler system(chapter 4); provisions to facilitate performance-based design, particularly relating to initiation devices; the creation of Response Time Index on heat detector documentation and markings; mandatory smoke detector spacing in the absence of pfd criteria, and much more.

Our panel of experts will break down the changes, including what didn't make the cut and why; They'll also explain how all this will affect future building fire protection designs and specifications.
