Background

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 approve 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 the May Meeting each year. The NFPA invites public comment on its Reports on Proposals.

Request for Comments

Interested persons may participate in these revisions by submitting written data, views, or arguments to Casey C. Grant, Secretary, Standards Council, NFPA, 1 Batterymarch Park, Quincy, Start Printed Page 36258Massachusetts 02269-9101. Commenters may use the forms provided for comments in the Reports on Proposals. Each person submitting a comment should include his or her name and address, identify the notice, and give reasons for any recommendations. Comments received on or before October 5, 2001, for the “2002 May Meeting Report on Proposals” and the “2002 Building Code Report on Proposals” will be considered by the NFPA before final action is taken on the proposals.

Copies of all written comments received and the disposition of those comments by the NFPA committees will be published as the 2002 May Meeting Report on Comments and the 2002 Building Code Report on Proposals by March 29, 2002, prior to the May Meeting.

A copy of the Report on Comments will be sent automatically to each commentator. Action on the reports of the Technical Committees (adoption or rejection) will be taken by NFPA members at the May Meeting, May 19-23, 2002 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
