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 to the Standards Council for issuance in January and July of each year. Documents that receive an Intent to Make a Motion are automatically held for action at the NFPA's meeting in June of each year. The NFPA invites public comment on its Report on Proposals.
