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.
