The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) develops building, fire, and electrical safety codes and standards. Federal agencies frequently use these codes and standards as the basis for developing Federal regulations concerning fire safety. Often, the Office of the Federal Register approves the incorporation by reference of these standards under 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR Part 51.
Revisions of existing standards and adoption of new standards are reported by the technical committees at the NFPA's November Meeting or at the May Meeting each year. The NFPA invites public comments on its “Report on Proposals.”
Request for Comments

Grant, Secretary, Standards Council, NFPA, 1 Batterymarch Park, Quincy, Massachusetts 02269-9101. Commenters may use the forms provided for comments in the “Report on Proposals.” Each person submitting a comment should include his or her name and address, identify the notice, and give reasons for any recommendations.
